To install lang/swi-prolog-packages apparently requires
an existing running and usable X server. That's absurd,
any information from any X server cannot possibly be relevant
or useful after the package is installed, nothing (including
what resolutions, fonts, extensions, ...) that any X server
might be able to convey at install time is to be expected to
be even similar to the X server that would be used by any
of the (possibly many different) users who use the installed
Create an environment without DISPLAY set, I use pkg_comp
to achieve that (even if it had a DISPLAY setting, it would
not have access to the auth files needed to allow access).
Attempt to install (after successfully building)
with DISPLAY unset.
