Does MKX11=no (either in /etc/mk.conf or using -V in build.sh) do what you
You probably also want to check into not building other 'stuff' (check man
mk.conf). On my server, I usually build with:
# Don't build Auth methods we don't need
# Note that sysinst chokes w/o these due to PAM dependencies!
# I don't use sendmail or postfix
# I don't want IPV6
# I don't want IPFilter
# Build X stuff?
Hope that helps.
