Ok, so what happens when ghostscript, ImageMagick, libsdl etc switch option?  I ask because:

~$ port installed|grep x11
  ghostscript @9.05_2+no_x11 (active)
  ImageMagick @6.7.8-3_0+no_x11+q16 (active)
  libsdl @1.2.15_0+no_x11 (active)

will the +no_x11 be automagically transformed in -x11?

just to check: +quartz is meant to indicate I installed XQuartz myself and that macports will not try to install any X related packages?  I damn well want to avoid macports switching to XQuartz based bloat.
