| configure:25062: checking for python module gtk

Yes, I see the exact same thing when DISPLAY is a random value.
When it is a proper, but unauthorised, server, it still fails just the
same way as described in the initial PR.
That makes for a simple workaround to build the package, and suggests
that the real problem here is very strange behaviour of the pygtk
module (&/or python) rather than a defect in this package itself.
It isn't even clear why pygtk would want to make a connection to
the X server when used the way it is by the tiny program configure runs
to check that pygtk is present.
A fairly easy fix (avoidance procedure) for this package would be to
simply remove the test for pygtk from the configure script - pkgsrc
knows (ensures) that pygtk is present using its dependency mechanism,
there's no real need in a pkgsrc environment to test further for it.
