On a clean machine, setting WITHOUT_X11=yes in /etc/make.conf then using
ports to install firefox eg "portmaster www/firefox" is going to be the
easiest way to get a minimal install.  Then only required X11 components
will be pulled in(assuming the port tree is in a good state).   Obviously
X11 cannot be eliminated entirely on the headless system try to forward X11
apps.  There is a reason you have to type "ssh -X"
