Just to clear things up, while lots of fixes are being made regarding
dependencies on virtual/x11 and x11-base/xfree:

virtual/x11 means a package that contains all necessary libraries,
headers, build tools (imake, etc.) and other miscellaneous files to
enable any external application requiring the oh-so-vague "X" to build
and run.

This meaning may change in the future as some things grow more
modularized, but that's where it stands now.
