exporting from the command line without X


we are using images drawn with dia in our project. It's an awesome
project - keep up the great work guys.

Anyway we have a minor problem with exporting from the command line. It
seems that the way dia works (or at least the debian packages are built)
dia depends on X, even if all one wants to do is export a dia file to
say eps on the command line. We use the "-e" facilty from our Makefiles,
but we cannot fully automate building because dia requires X (not only
the libs, but a running instance of it)

Do the export filters really need a running X, or could this dependency
be stripped out?
