Thanks, unluckily, as I already said there can be many interactions in
the system, not always obvious...Not even to maintainers/committers! :)

There' a clear error message from the ocaml port here:
requires X11 support to build TK bindings
the ocaml port has an X11 and a TK option. TK depends on X11, you are
asking the ocaml port to give you TK but not X11, so it just errors out,
since from the port point of view there isn't a clear solution, and asks
for user intervention, since it's being given conflicting options.
The port could also say "well I can't build TK without X11 so I'll just
ignore the TK option and build without X11 and without TK", which isn't
really correct(the other way round, forcing X11 on could be just as
reasonable), but could be what you expected.
Anyway the ocaml port is coded in this way, so you also have to add TK
to the disabled options. most probably you have TK enabled in the ocaml
per port options.

obviously, that's what you asked for, in this case.

It did work because the ocaml-nox11 port has this line:
which takes care of both the options, so ocaml found no conflict.
(never use OPTIONS_EXCLUDE in make.conf, it doesn't belong there, it's
for port makefiles.
