I don't think systemd is required to run the X server. However, maybe some more --disable-<something> options are needed when
building the X server, I don't know.

But anyway, if you are using the X.org (which is a big thing), then moving from uClibc to eglibc should not be a problem, as the
size difference between uClibc and eglibc is insignificant compared to the size of the X.org stack (and Webkit, that you mention

What about giving up on X.org and instead use a Qt/Webkit application, using the framebuffer Qt implementation?

Dear Thomas

Yes, X is a full dish of spaghetti.

I found no conf_opt to disable systemd.
(Did a build with eglibc, but systemd itself seems to be broken here,,so dead end here too.)

I am wondering if webkit could be used on top of directfb instead of X.

I tried to build Qt5/webkit but no luck here either.
(Qt4.8/ webkit builds ok, but I don't know if it fully supports html5 & websockets)
