From :
``Imlib 2 can run without a display, so it can be easily used for background
image processing for web sites or servers - it only requires the X libraries
to be installed - that is all - it does not require an XServer to run unless
you wish to display images.''

I wonder how you managed to install imlib2 without X in the first place.
Is this information outdated?

Assuming for the moment it is possible, I'm not sure how we can support the
features of an X-enabled imlib2 conditionally.  (I don't want to cripple
the imlib2 egg so that people can use it without X but those who use X can't
make full use of it)  I don't think chicken-setup has a way to provide
options to the egg.  Felix?
