[vtkusers] Compiling VTK on X11-less system

Is it possible to run VTK applications on a cluster with compute nodes but
without X11? This is bound to be possible as Paraview can work in such a
configuration using EGL as a backend for rendering. I am looking for a similar
setup with pure VTK.

I have an idea for several applications that could take advantage of running
in parallel or with powerful GPUs, but I do not want to get involved with X11
installation on compute nodes.

Please advise,
