I'm thinking/wondering two things:

First this is a great opportunity to weed out accumulated fluff and cruft from X -- perhaps moving some of it to ports (or nowhere at all; Does anyone really need or want xeyes?)

I'm assuming there are still some other GNU autotools dependencies? I'm wondering will the necessary tools require installation autotools installation from ports, or will the necessary autotools be imported into the GNU portion of the source tree? It is nice to keep the GNU stuff to a minimum, but I guess 'ya need what ya need'. Not a big deal either way, I'm just curious.
