[Xorg] Supported Hardware Question

We have an IBM RS/6000 server running AIX.  We were wondering if we can 
compile and run X on this platform for use as a terminal server.

Documentation on supported hardware is rather vague.  I'm worried that this 
is because all efforts have focused on x86 hardware and nothing has 
happened with regard to POWER processors.

Exactly on how low a level does Xserver interact with the hardware?  Would 
this prohit it from being ported to non-PC architechure?

If it helps, the server was only going to be used as a terminal server, not 
a terminal client.
