Check out libsdl:
port cat libsdl | grep -A4 "variant_isset no_x11"
if {[variant_isset no_x11]} {
    default_variants -x11
} else {
    default_variants +x11

or others:
echo $REPO
find $REPO -maxdepth 3 -name Portfile -exec echo {} \; -exec grep -A5 -i -E -- "variant_isset.*no_x11" {} \; | grep -B1 -v /Portfile
