Inkscape 0.92.0 now available on MacPorts

Examining my many ports, I find (from sudo port installed and active | grep +x11 that I have 40 ports with +x11 variant, including at least the two, cairo and pango, that both quarts and x11 support enabled. I seem to have no trouble with them. And only cairo, tango, and tk with +quartz variants.
So it seems I should go with the +x11 variant of inkscape.
Now among the dependencies of inkscape (shown by sudo port info inkscape) I see:
Build Dependencies: pkgconfig, autoconf, automake, libtool, intltool, perl5.24
Library Dependencies: desktop-file-utils, popt, boehmgc, gdk-pixbuf2, gsl,
gtkmm, dbus-glib, lcms2, poppler, boost, ImageMagick,
libcdr-0.1, libexif, libvisio-0.1, libwpg-0.3, aspell,
gtkspell2, potrace, py27-lxml, py27-numpy
Is there some recursive port command that would reveal if any of these in turn have dependencies that use only quartz support but not x11 support, so I could do some kind of minimal rebuild with x11 and without disturbing any ports that might depend in turn on those other ports that use cairo or pango?
That is, I don’t want to recklessly destroy working ports!
