Yeah, but you might not need all those packages.  If you only need the
base X libraries for java or some app that links against some X library,
and you don't intend to support graphical logins on the machine, all you
need are the following packages (probably):
Xaw3d
XFree86-libs-data
XFree86-Mesa-libGLU
XFree86-Mesa-libGL
XFree86-libs
