there are ports that need cairo to be compiled with x11 support

    go to /usr/ports/graphics/cairo
    make config
    turn on x11
    make config
    x11 is off

how special

even setting manually (editing /var/db/ports/graphics_cairo/options)
does not work, make config whacks it back

this is not new



 I'm not sure why you're having this issue. Try deleting /var/db/ports/graphics_cairo and run make config again? Is your port tree updated? I actually just did this last night and it is working fine...
