Before buildlink3 was enabled by default, we could use NO_BUILDLINK,
I don't know which option is used for this now... if there isn't one, we
should add one.
Enabling buildlink3 for meta-pkgs and packages as pkg_comp makes
the installation slower.

Yes, USE_X11 should be removed.

Hmm maybe USE_LANGUAGES= # empty? (for the .gcc/bin directory)
No idea for the tools, but there should be an option to turn on/off it.
