This was after it compiled all this X11 crap that my servers don't need. Ironically, I need to refactor options because now I can't build ImageMagick-noX11. 

While manually unsetting CUPS and GS_cups options for ghostscript did not prevent CUPS to be pulled in,
in make.conf did work for me.

While I can live with it this way, I still think that running
pkg install ImageMagick-nox11
on a webserver should not result in all the bloat being included by default.
It's not like setting up a webserver FAMP / FNMP stack is an uncommon task?
