I think we should standardize on the naming of packages wrt to "-nox11"
vs "-x11". Currently, we have several packages that have a "-nox11"
equivalent indicating that this package builds without X11, and others
with "-x11" equivalents. It would be less confusing if we would have a
default and then say for packages that may either work with or without
the naming is always "<package name>" for _with_ X11 support and
"<package name>-nox11" without.
I don't have a preference as to which should be the default, but a
default should be chosen, I think.
