X-less VirtualBox OSE

It’s possible now. Still in testing phase though but it’ll be surely interesting and there goes my final (non-experimental/fun) reason of staying with OpenSolaris. VNC is rather crappy but it’s much better than compiling/installing X just for that one program.

Compiling X is no fun. At all.

Binary install doesn’t help that much either because it’ll become almost impossible to sanely manage all the programs to be kept updated (binary and source installation doesn’t mix). Slow binary availability doesn’t help either.
