The further away from a wall the better.
Mine are about 1.5 feet from the wall. 
Wouldn't want them right next to the wall... as you'd get massive bass build-up

If you have a small space for mixing/listening, there's really no other option than putting the monitors close to the wall.  Anything closer than 3 ft is generally a problem whether you have rear ports or front ports....although rear ports are worse in that situation.
 
if you can find monitors that have crossovers, that will help especially if you get a sub.  Then, you're removing some of the problem from the source, and offsetting with a sub.  The sub I mentioned earlier is a front port design.  That was my solution to the rear ports of the monitors and small room issues.  My monitors are only 1ft from the wall, but I have a treated room also.  Without having to "get used" to the problems during mixing, my mixing results are better now and take less time/less iterations.

I'm using the Sub with the HS7s.
No problem with 1.5' from the wall.
 
If you ever watch "The Night Shift", you'll hear music that was mixed on HS7s with matching Sub.
