pkgtools/pkgdepgraphs requires at build time a whole bunch of stuff, since it wants to build graphics/graphviz
It is not mandatory, one can have a server, without X, nor Tcl/Tk and all that sort of things.
pkgdepgraph it perfectly usable to generate dot files, which you can convert to pdf, png or whatever on an other box
which runs X
Comment the line
DEPENDS+=      graphviz-[0-9]*:../../graphics/graphviz

and add an indication in MESSAGE that graphviz is required to actally see the graph, not to generate it
