you can use the xf68fb server in 3.3.6 and it works, I did this for the
first day I had my pismo, then I decided it was too darn slow and compiled
xfree 4 from source (Ani's tree (dang I cant type the name Ani without
thinking of the fol singer, oh well))

So X is available however it is not hard, just tedious and long winded, to
download the debian X sources and build with dpkg-buildpackage, it will give
you the best of all worlds (well those worlds in which you wish to
participate, namely debian potato) if you do though I suspect.
