I don't think (read: hope) X needs much more RAM for compilation than it did 9
years ago, when I did development and m68k binary releases of XFree86 on my
A4000/040 with 12 MB of RAM. Recent gcc may need more RAM for compilation,
though. And you need to compile the X server only.
It will be slow, but it should work.
Alternatively, you can cross-compile.
