Because the X11 parts aren't separated from the other stuff in the 
infrastructure. You're right in saying that it should be, from a pkgsrc 
user's view, since something that one doesn't use should not break 
unrelated things. Anyway, in this case that does not apply. :(

I don't think that will be fixed soon, but at least this particular bug 
will be caught with a friendly error message. I hope that helps a bit.
