With X11_TYPE, there are basically two valid setups:

This does not imply the server set is installed and it does not imply
anything is cofigured.
X11_TYPE=modular, and X11-world things will be provided from pkgsrc,
with either native X11 installed and ignored or not installed
I would like to see the equivalent of an X11_TYPE=none, since X11 is not
"similar to many other big things" as you see it. X11 is (until, maybe,
Wayland) the only graphics platform we have, and as such it plays a
special role as enabler for GTK, QT and friends.

Maybe tone it down a bit? My daily workplace driver is a NetBSD X11
workstation, and has been for almost 25 years...
where you leave X11_TYPE=native and want to
have absolutely nothing from X11 on your system. The former is a
misonfiguration and I don't think we should torque pkgsrc around to
I've tried both. I found myself playing whack-a-mole where at every
turn, a package attempted to sneak in X11 dependencies despite setting
X11_TYPE=native, especially after the change that started the thread,
gives a clear error, so I can look at my options. Setting
X11_TYPE=modular, when I clearly do not want X11 bits on a server
installation, feels like a misconfiguration to me.
Nothing religious on my end, this is a purely pragmatic decision.
