I am not sure what is in the X-user but: 1) consider that a web server being a server, you may need no X at all. 2) if you don't install the source of X now, next time there will be the slightest update needed on X, you will probably have to download all the sources instead of downloading only the one that changed. I find it a good idea to always have the source, because sooner or later (and rather sooner than later) I will have to reconstruct everything and I will then need the sources.
