Now I can build gtk3 against libepoxy with no options, so things seem

I don't follow why X11_TYPE=native is different from X11_TYPE=modular.
As I understand it, native means XQuartz from a dmg, more or less, and
modular is more or less the same code built from pkgsrc.   It looks like
libepoxy would fail with X11_TYPE=modular.

Separately from this and longer term, it seems that we perhaps need a
X11_TYPE=none for systems without X11, so that skipping X can be cleanly
set once.  As far as I can tell, so far pkgsrc has not really supported
the concept of not having X11.   Adam: can you explain what you set to
build without X11?  Or is it just that you don't build anything that
tends to want X11?
