Hello Ulf,

TinyX (kdrive) from http://intimate.handhelds.org/jacques/ seems to be very outdated ( dated by 2002 ).

Most of ARM embedded people use kdrive implementation for Xorg X11R7.x
(from openembedded.org).

GTK2 is not building with TinyX because of cairo requires new API (Xrender).
May be GTK-1.2 could be build but I never tried.

However TinyX build for arm was succeeded for me however not tested on target.
(i'm using uclibc with wchar and locale support).

Best regards,
