the command "pkg_deinstall -nR vim" (this command is port of the portupgrade 
package) will give you a list of all packages vim depends on. Removing the 'n'
switch will actually upward-recursively deinstall these packages, excluding
the ones that are needed by other packages.
Then rebuild vim WITHOUT_X11 ;)
