-nox11, -x11, -qt, -tty, etc.
The following packages are obvious candidates for using package options:
I plan on converting them to use package options instead of requiring a
separate package to handle the presence or lack of X11.
Because people may be relying on these packages to generate binary
packages, I will keep these package directories in place with the
necessary magic to build the corresponding package. For example, with
databases/sqsh I plan on adding a "x11" option and then
databases/sqsh-x11 will install a package named "sqsh-x11" that simply
pulls in sqsh/Makefile and forces the "x11" option to be turned on. If
at a later time we decide on how we want to generate binary packages of
the same package with different options, we can remove these packages at
