I assume they're talking about installing git from FreeBSD ports
("ports" because it's in the subject line, "FreeBSD" because of
/etc/make.conf), not from source.

I see a  GUI=off  configuration for the git port; does that help?


Yes freebsd ports apologies for not specifying.

I was able to successfully install git on a fresh system without gtk
entering into the mix, when i failed before i had BATCH="YES" in
/etc/make.conf and the only thing i can think of is that for some strange
reason it set 'git-ui' automatically. Also that box had a lot of thrash in
x11 dependencies so that may have accounted for it.

In summary its resolved, not completely sure how but its working the way I
want now.
