[Bug 905059] Re: 64bit version depends on X?

The dependency on X is intentional. There is no CUDA / OpenCL without X.
And GPGPUs  make up easily for those not installing the package any more
because of X. And there were complaints about the boinc-client not
detecting mouse movements, which only the X libraries detect. We could
have - in very deep theory - a variant without any dependency on X. Pay
me for it.  Steffen
