It would be useful to provide a pointer to instructions for doing so --
what exactly replaces WITH/WITHOUT entries in make.conf? For example,
my dedicated server has WITHOUT_X11=yes in /etc/make.conf because it's
headless and doesn't run an X server. What should that become?

I tried googling, and the github doc page's only mention of make.conf is
to add "WITH_PKGNG=yes". Likewise the FreeBSD Handbook. The wiki
apparently just points to the Handbook.
