I accidentally found

The glib2 port recently got x11 and quartz variants added, and they conflict with one another, as they do in most ports that have them; the user must choose one or the other. The default is x11, as it is for other ports that have this choice.

A trivial patch like this one:
could be the answer for
(I would be really grateful if this was fixed.)
So I don't like the idea of generally removing variants, but we do
need to find a solution for this problem.
