The biggest SD card I have is like 64MB (yeah I know, I should buy a bigger one). So using up 8MB or whatever for X is a big space taker.

Whats Qtopia? A quick google search says its Trolltech's application platform for embedded Linux based PDAs. Sounds like an alternative way of saying "a bloated gui, full of applications you'll never use". Unless of course it means something different...
I don't see you complaining about SDL , even when we had to update it on the earlier firmwares or install it on our SD ourselves. X could be in the firmware too, then no worries.
I've never installed any part of SDL, that's why So it's not on my SD, and never had been. Any application that failed/fails to run without it simply got/gets deleted. Most of the time people just link it statically, so I'm happy.
I don't think you can statically link X however, and if you could, it would probably bloat the app by 7meg or so.
