The graph unit doesn't use X at all, as it uses only svgalib functions,
which switches the graphics adapter directly to the right graphics mode.

A solution could be GGI plus its own version of svgalib: A svgalib
replacement, which redirects all commands to GGI itself. Perhaps it's
possible to use remote X servers with that.
I don't see other possiblities in conjunction with the old graph unit;
normally you have to use the xlib for accessing local or remote X
servers. Libraries such as GDK/GTK are built on top of xlib, or you
might even use the fpGFX library for Free Pascal, which is still quite
But all of these libraries force you to work event based.
