Well, last time I tried to compile one of Firefox's
recent versions from ports, it demanded to have
access to X during the "make" stage. That was the
point I decided _not_ to continue (as the system
in question didn't have X). Maybe I did something
wrong, maybe I should have dealt with building
options more carefully. But anyway, you type "make"
and the intended web browser wants to access X?

browser went through without that kind of annoying
