variants, deps and upgrades

I'm doing some tests with gtk-quartz.  Many hours of genuine delight  

Now, gtk-quartz does not need Xft2 and xrender.  So I made the quartz  
variant remove those deps.  But "port upgrade" will try to install  
them anyway.  So I thought of this.  I could make quartz variants for  
those ports to make them install barely a receipt.  Some sort of  
stub.  But it seems like a cheesy solution to me.

Any advice ?
