_Probably_ not.

It's more likely there was an X specific package you needed for it to work (maybe "xauth"? "libXpm"?), which was missing.

Installing all of the X Windows stuff took care of the problem, but it's _probably_ not all needed. :)

With sufficient time and effort, you could probably use something like "ldd" to figure out what was missing.  But, it could take some time, and it's probably not worth it now you have it working. :)
