| tux$ find /etc/X11/ -type f | xargs grep -i listen
| /etc/X11/xinit/xserverrc:exec /usr/bin/X11/X -dpi 100 -nolisten tcp
| /etc/X11/xfs/config:# turn off TCP port listening (Unix domain connections are still permitted)
| /etc/X11/xfs/config:no-listen = tcp
| tux$ 

Tux is not a MIPS box, but it is running Debian...
