Yes, if you put 

hdspmixer >anyfilename

in /etc/rc.local, it will sneakily load hdspmixer without invoking the
GUI, so you don't need to start X at all.

Also, if your set the $JACK_START_SERVER environment variable with
jack>=0.9.8 (I think), the jack server will start automatically when you
start a client. 

I don't know if this is of any use?
