Color alternatives on Symbolics

Using an X terminal, you first start an X window manager on a Sun or other
host that has X window management software. Then you start the Symbolics
console as an X window controlled by that manager.
The Symbolics does almost nothing (don't flame me) with regard to window
management and X. It is just an application not an X server.
My application, however, cannot assume the presence of any non-Symbolics
host; so I would like the Symbolics to host the X terminal itself,
without outside assistance.
Ironically, Symbolics does offer an X server (an X11R4 port, I believe)
for the Genera console, attached to Select-Square. Perhaps this server
software could be adapted for simple remote X-terminal use?
