If the backend is X, you use http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xvfb.
Although it is often more convenient to use a common wrapper script
called xvfb-run, which is also what our bulidbot uses. xvfb-run is
actually used by default always (detected during configure-time), so
if you have xvfb-run installed and runs make check, you won't see any
GIMP UI while the UI tests are run, they will run in Xvfb.
