Hello James :)

I run a 40MHz 68040, without X, and it's .... tortuous to say the least -
although most of that comes from installing packages... can take up to 3
minutes just to unpack and install a package.

It's not apt's fault - it's a complex packaging system that needs to check
dependencies, etc., but in short I would stick to dirt-cheap i386 for X
facilities.. hell X is slow enough on Celerons around 500MHz, I shudder to
think what a 25MHz '030 would throw at it...
