As the recent discussions on this list concluded, each port should  
enable by default most of the features common user may want.
Another thing i believe would be good is that lib ports with doxygen  
documentation should have a doc variant that build it.

But, one thing i don't understand is that if you want to build  
doxygen, you must install X11 for the ghostscript dependency.
Shouldn't ghostscript X11 support be a variant of the port?
I don't think users who are just willing to build some API  
documentation want X11 installed.
