Build Ports Without X11?

Hi all,

I am using Poudriere to bulk build packages and encountered a failure that
resulted in the program skipping a couple ports.  The failure occurred due
to an X11 error.  However, the expectation is that all ports would build
without X11 thus negating the need to compile and build all the X11
dependancies for various packages.

Despite the make.conf (shown below) specifying WITHOUT_X11, all these ports
built with X11 support anyway.

I'm pretty sure I must be doing something wrong and hoping that someone
might be able to lead me to the solution that will compile any port without
X11 support.

Packages failed/skipped:

gtk-update-icon-cache-2.24.22: failed
gtk2-2.24.22_3: skipped due to above failure
vim-7.4.364: skipped due to above failure


# cat 10_0-amd64-make.conf

Take care
