And doc/lispref/anti.texi too :-).

But in any case, I'm not sure I understand the purpose of this flag, or
why, if it is supposed to build a minimal Emacs, X support is left
enabled.  Please explain the use-case.

1) Testing: check whether the work on FEATURE1, FEATURE2, ... FEATUREN
do not broke the build without FEATURE1, ... and without all of these

2) Building small OS distribution to fit in CD, 100Mb or so. Such
a distributions usually prefers vi{m} and/or small Emacs clones,
but who knows; such a distribution is not necessary X-less.

3) Using minimalistic desktop environments on top of the old hardware.
