Another possible solution would be:

ssh -L 2000:remotehost:22 firewall

and then, again on the local machine:

ssh -X -p 2000 localhost
(here you may get a warning about unknown/wrong host keys, because the
daemon you are connecting to is, of course, not presenting the host key
of localhost)

This way, you have a direct ssh connection between both computers
involved in X forwarding, and the firewall doesn't need (parts of)
an X installation.
