Some sort of XKB data will probably be needed by console-setup, AIUI
(although looking closer it seems that the keymaps are pre-built for
console-setup-udeb, so maybe not). The fixed font can be built into
libXfont so doesn't require external dependencies.

The extension libraries are pretty small anyway. libx11-6 and
libx11-data are the bigger parts though.
