Re: Install emacs without install X?

no we don't, it is a monster package and it is not worth the emacs maintainers
time to build it twice.
It only depends on the X *libs*. Having this on your server is not a bad
thing. It means you can run x apps with their -display pointing at your
desktop which is occasionally handy.
You can of course grab the emacs package, edit debian/rules to ignore X and
make your own package. In the changelog set the version to 20:1.0 and Debian
won't replace it any time soon.
