Hi Jeremy,

thanks for your helpful response.

Based on that I have filed a ticket for further review [1]. It builds fine here.

Well, I am not sure what to do about this in libcaca, as all I did was moving things
from the port into the default x11 variant, so changing nothing effectively for x11.

As I am not an X11 Xpert, I am unsure about whether a non-X11 port would/could build
with or w/o GLUT/CGL.

Wondering whether there is any connection between the above and gstreamer1-gst-plugins-good
failing on me [2]...
