If you can get cross-compiling full XFree86, you'll be a hero of all times.
It shouldn't be hard to get it with KDriveArchitecture & TinyX enabled.

I was working on it a while ago, and here are few pointers:
Some tools have to be run natively (i.e. xkbcomp), but also need to
be installed on target. I din't find a rule that does both. I think new
rule is needed.

gcc-3.0 crashes when compiling some parts of Xserver and Xlib,
with very obscure bug. Minimal test case I came up with is
~45(!) lines long. Keith filed report to gcc team on my behalf,
but there seems to be no responce. I do not know if your
gcc has same problem, but someone mentioned similar problem
with 2.9x.y series on this list not so long ago.

Hmm... I can't remember any other interesting things at this moment, but if I
will, I'll follow up...
