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.
