I found Tiny-X for embedded devices a few days ago. It's part of
X-Free86 4.0. I don't know if the code made it into xorg or not, but it
was put in before the split I believe. I also don't have the slightest
idea if it will work for your purpose. Maybe somebody else here can
shed some light, but the "less than 1MB on x86 CPUs" bit sounds like it
might be nice for your systems.
See http://www.linuxdevices.com/links/LK6129039469.html for a simple
intro and http://www.pps.jussieu.fr/~jch/software/kdrive.html for some
instructions that looked easy enough.
