I'll assume that the package doesn't depend on any particular version of
xemacs. So your condition can be expressed as

DEPENDS+=	xemacs-{,no-x-}[0-9]*

Also be sure that it doesn't inadvertently pull in any X stuff when
built against xemacs, so the binary package will indeed be usable for
xemacs-no-x users.
