Unfortunately, that switch isn't working as "I don't want anything pulled in
that uses X11", but rather as "If this port can be built without X11, then I
will obey that, otherwise I will go ahead and install X11".
Maybe that's a project for next google's summer of code.
Anyway, the port depends on x11-toolkits/swt, which is what pulls in X. If you
know that azareus can be built without X, you could request support for it
through the send-pr(1) mechanism, but it doesn't look like that'd be an easy
Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules
and never get to the software part.
