X server on Linux 2.4

Does current server code work on a Linux 2.4 kernel?

Initial investigation indicates no, as I built a server from X.org 7.5 source
and it (e.g. 'vesa' driver) uses libpciaccess to find the video controller and
libpciaccess uses sysfs and sysfs doesn't exist on Linux 2.4.

I couldn't find any description of what environment X.org requires.
