Build with GUI enabled by default.

Authored by jonathan on Oct 3 2016, 12:37 AM.



Since this is an X11 application, I suggest enabling the GUI bits by
default. This change brings in a dependency on Python, but so do an
awful lot of other packages on a desktop or notebook (e.g., GTK).

I have a patch waiting for my acceptance to upgrade this to a newer release. If we enable GUI, we break the package building.

Newer Redshift requires Python 3, and Python 3 is not the default Python version in the ports tree. As a result, many Python modules are not installable from the official FreeBSD repo because they were built against Python 2, which causes the package build to fail.

Thanks for responding... sounds like a tough problem until we make the leap to Python 3.
