The reason the "x11" option won't work is because the native version
of X11 on NetBSD 5.2 is "too old". (I put that in quotations because
as the original submitter noted, in the source tree, there's a file
that's intended to create a x11-xcb.pc file, but it's not installed
by a build, for whatever reason. Perhaps the associated functionality
isn't built by NetBSD in the -5 release series.) Using a newer
version of libX11 from pkgsrc addresses the problem of the missing
$ pkg_admin dump | grep x11-xcb.pc
file: /usr/pkg/lib/pkgconfig/x11-xcb.pc pkg: libX11-1.6.2nb1
The "x11" option defaults to being enabled for this package, which
is entirely reasonable, except on NetBSD 5.x that's not using
"modular" X.org. Perhaps a test could be added that disables "x11"
if building on NetBSD 5.x and "modular" isn't defined.
As for setting PKG_OPTIONS.pulseaudio=avahi to disable "x11", that
doesn't work; the package still insists on enabling "x11", I just
tested that. I encountered the same situation with audio/libcanberra,
where setting PKG_OPTIONS.libcanberra=gtk doesn't stop it from
pulling in gtk3 as well. (In that case, I ended up editing the
options.mk file to remove "gtk3" from PKG_SUGGESTED_OPTIONS. The same
approach works for pulseaudio, though obviously it's not optimal...
There may be a better way I'm not familiar with.)
