 I've come to the same conclusion. I'd seen a discussion in tech-pkg
 in early June where it was stated "builtin X11 is sufficient unless
 using gtk3", but apparently that's no longer the case. (Or I just
 misunderstood the context of the discussion...)
 Setting a few preferences in /etc/mk.conf gets me farther:
 But then I run into other problems, e.g. with libXi:

 Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
 installed software in a non-standard prefix.
 Alternatively, you may set the environment variables XFIXES_CFLAGS
 and XFIXES_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
 See the pkg-config man page for more details.

 I got around that one by manually editing where the link pointed for
 the xfixes.pc file, but then that just leads to:
 In file included from XGetCPtr.c:39:
 ../include/X11/extensions/XInput2.h:178: error: expected =

 ../include/X11/extensions/XInput2.h:359: error: expected =

 specifiers or '...' before 'PointerBarrier'
 *** Error code 1
 make: stopped in /home/disciple/pkgsrc/x11/libXi/work/libXi-1.7.2/src
 *** Error code 1
 Which is telling me I'm trying too hard and should find a better way.
