If it balloons out the build times I'd prefer not, at least on the
vax port.  None of the vaxen I use have frame buffers.

Well, I think the point of xvfb is that it doesn't require or use a
framebuffer in the machine.

    Yup, exactly. The relative additional time for a build with
    and without xvb is going to be marginal - if you want to
    save build time you should skip building X11 altogether,
    or crossbuild from a faster box. Given that x68k is going
    to have xvfb added that would leave vax as the odd port

You are aware that "marginal" might very well mean days here?
