        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)
        lang/swi-prolog-packages (swi-prolog-packages-5.6.17nb3)
        with DISPLAY unset.

        Expect to see ...

Error: Environment variable DISPLAY must be set
       and point to a connectible X server.
