Is there a way to configure JIRA on FREEBSD without any X11 component ?

I'm trying to install JIRA on a freebsd 9.0 that has no X11 component, when I try to run configure.sh, I'm getting this:

DB config file '/home/jira/jira-data/dbconfig.xml' is not created yet - loading database settings as blank.

Exception in thread "main" java.awt.HeadlessException:

No X11 DISPLAY variable was set, but this program performed an operation which requires it.

Is there a template file I can use to set-up my database and stuff ? I didn't find anything helpful anywhere....
thanks.

Can you edit the configure.sh to add -Djava.awt.headless=true to the JAVA_OPTS? I haven't used the GUI configurer but I thought it also did have commandline option

That's what I'd check first anyway

thanks for your reply but I opened the config.sh file and it doesn't seem to have much in there. Also, I don't think disabling the awt header will solve me problem, I mean, I won't be able to see any GUI thing still....
