That's what my changes actually do. I implemented the options-framework
for print/teTeX, and used it to make x11-dependencies omittable. For
those, who'd like to install everything, including X11-stuff, just run
make with no options, for those like me, add a -x11 to the options and
gone are those packages that require X11-support.

Installing everything tex-related manually would not only be tedious,
but it would also very like to miss some package, because, honestly, I
have no idea what is required for a complete tex-system. print/teTeX
comes in highly convenient, and with my patches applied, I think
everyone would be able to get what they want.
