This in fact is what happened.

I'll have to test-run that tomorrow on another machine where I set
X11_TYPE=modular. As mentioned, on the machine I am currently
installing, this required too much hand-holding to make sure I only got
what I wanted, and I reverted to X11_TYPE=native.
For a general idea: The (now basically completed) machine installation
has apache, mariadb, postgresql, several web applications and the
assorted bunch of php, python and perl scripts, amounting to ~220
packages. For comparison, my workstation (icewm, so very little
kde/gnome stuff) amounts to ~1350 packages.
During the build I ran into three X11 related problems: xemacs-packages
(fonts), xymon (dejavu-ttf via rrdtool), and graphviz (while it has an
option to disable X11 support, either the tcl or lua dependency pulled
in X11 parts).
It looks like dejavu-ttf is the rare exception from a rule that there
will be little use for fonts in an non-X11 installation. Apparently
rrdtool originally shipped with its own copy of dejavu-ttf, and later
split it out.
I suggest just re-applying my original patch to dejavu-ttf, since there
will not be many more cases like it.
