Hi Cera,

please note the remote X11 forwarding post I just sent out. I think it 
might be useful for you to administrate PD running on a server.

However, if you compile PD thusly:

you will not be able to use the remote X11 over SSH because it relies on 
the X display of the Remote machine (i.e. the server). Of course, there 
are other ways of doing it (stop PD, make a new patch and SCP that to 
the running server and then start PD with "-nogui" and "-open $FILENAME" 
flags, for example).

So, it might be a good idea to approach the administator of your server 
and ask if it's possible to install TCL, TK and X for your use.
