Essentially when installing boinc-client on Ubuntu Server 11.10  x64 it
pulls in X dependencies while the x86 version does not. When tested both
servers were fairly vanilla installs.

32 bit machine

    The following NEW packages will be installed:
      boinc-client libcurl3

64 bit machine

    The following NEW packages will be installed:
      boinc-client fontconfig:i386 ia32-libs ia32-libs-multiarch:i386 lib32asound2 lib32bz2-1.0 lib32ffi6 lib32gcc1 lib32ncurses5

Is it necessary for the x64 version of the *client* to depend on
programs and libraries that provide X functionality? And if it does, why
does the x86 version not depend on them?
