We're using Xvfb on Solaris at a customer's site.

My colleague did the following in the shell script that starts our
server app:

    ./Xvfb :9 -screen 0 320x240x24 &
    export DISPLAY=:9.0

Don't know what's necessary to install Xvfb, though. But I think it's
not more than putting the binary somewhere.
