Well, you can simply grab the server from:
 http://honk.physik.uni-konstanz.de/linux-mips/xfree86/bin/xfree86-2002-11-10.tar.gz 
But I would recommend to upgrade at least to testing/sarge anyway, we
had so many bugs fixed (especially when it comes to c++ applications
that I'd really make an (at least partial) update).

No it doesn't. You can't "crossbootstrap" with debootstrap. You'll have
to do all this on an Indy. Crosscompiling X is quiet easy though, build
a crosscompiler and use dpkg-cross, no need for pbuilder or a chroot.
Hope that helps,
