Subject: turn off buildlinking and USE_X11 and tools not needed for meta-pkgs

Building print/teTeX failed on my system because it had USE_X11 and I am
using Xorg and the files are skipped -- as noted in PR

Anyways, why would a meta-pkg, like print/teTeX, follow the buildlinking
in the first place if not doing a build? How can the buildlinking be
turned off?

Or is it okay if I remove USE_X11 from this meta-package?

Can USE_X11 be removed from all meta-pkgs (since they don't build and
don't install anything)?

Also, I see that this same meta-pkg build populated the .tools/bin and
.gcc/bin directories. Can that be turned off?
