Thats strange... Many programs can be compiled in such way, that they
work OK in both terminal and X11 modes.

But ... if some program is linked against X11 libs but DO NOT USE them
in current environment. Now we have two ports for "vim" editor ("vim"
and "gvim"). Maybe, there is some way to solve that problem at the
dynamic linking stage?
