For the record, not having or not running a X11 server doesn't mean you
don't have a subset of the corresponding *libraries*.

For example, I have a Debian jessie server and, while there's no
X11-related executable on the machine, I still have the following
libraries installed:

$ dpkg -l | grep X
ii  libpangox-1.0-0:amd64            0.0.2-5                       amd64        pango library X backend
