If you want to do that then you need to have an X server running right?
In some situations that consumes more memory, CPU, flash/disk than is
desireable. Is there any other advantage to having libX11, tcl/tk, etc.
other than wanting to ssh -X -C?

I do take your point, but I think you aren't considering all possible
applications and environments that Pd might potentially be a part of.
