No. It means don't use X11 at all, but use the native OSX graphics. e.g.
Chris-Jones-Macbook-Pro ~ > port variants gimp
gimp has the variants:
animation: Include the Gimp Animation Package (gimp-gap).
manual: Include help files.
quartz: Support for native Mac OS X graphics
If an application needs to link against X11, its MacPorts policy to always install its own X11 libraries, and not use the system ones. See
for the reasons why.
>> /opt/local/etc/macports/variants.conf is where you put the variants you want to enable/disable by default.
