I asked a question to quantify what the real problem is, and I'm sorry if that got buried so I'm restating it. First, I am assuming that that because on the machine in question that you have set X11_TYPE=modular because native X is not installed. (You are welcome to do what you want, but proposals to change pkgsrc IMHO have to be motivated by examples that are not deliberate misconfigurations.) You have a patch to dejavu-ttf to omit font registration. So let's assume that with that patch, you build everything you need. Now, if you back out that patch, and make replace in dejavu-ttf (or the equivalent before/after full builds; the detailed mechanism is not the point), what exactly is built and installed that you would rather isn't? how long does it take to build? how big is it? I think we are discussing trading off your discomfort with a small amount of unnecessary but not troublesome package bits with increased complexity for everyone. If you want to run with no native X and X11_TYPE=native to make things break, I would say that you are of course welcome to do that in a Free Software world, but I don't think we should change pkgsrc on that basis. Everybody else has been quiet. I'd like to hear from others about the big picture issue here.
