Sure, do something like this:

  gimp -i -b '(extension-perl-server 0 0 0)'&

AFAIK Gimp 1.2 still needs access to a X server for font rendering. To
implement a 'headless Gimp server', you could use Xvfb.

Gimp 2.0.X does font rendering on the client side, no X server
required. Might be a better solution.

Dynamic web graphics using a 'Gimp server' for 'on-the-fly rendering'
is pretty cool stuff. Speed is often an issue, so caching the
rendering results might be a good idea. I implemented something like
this a couple of years ago, when graphic rendering of textual content
(menu buttons, etc) was fashionable ;-).
