When upgrading urlview port it wants to install firefox (totally useless and a waste of ressources on a screenless server).
The makefile extract for it is
USE_GECKO= firefox-devel firefox35 seamonkey
I do not see why firfox should be a runtime dependency : I use urlview with w3m and it is completely sufficient.
How-To-Repeat: go to /usr/ports/textproc/urlview and type make install
Fix synopsis and assign.
I must agree with Erwan, my server just started installing firefox and X and
... And there are also non-firefox users out there ;)
I attached a simple patch, it keeps the gecko.sh and attempts to "guess" the
correct gecko browser anyway, this works with or without firefox actually
installed so there really is no need to include firefox as a dependency ...
Also, you can configure the browser in ~/.urlview, maybe fixing this so it
supports the firefox arguments would be a better idea (Presumably the
parenthesis are troubling?) would be a better solution IMO.
In any case, please remove the firefox dependency!

Trying to be happy is like trying to build a machine for which
the only specification is that it should run noiselessly.

Rev 1.22 (PR 102954) was a bad idea. This port should not have any default
dependencies as it causes too much trouble for folks using this port not with
Firefox. 'pkg_add -r urlview' should not add X11 and Firefox to ones system.
