[GRASS5] Why does v.label require an x display?

I¹m working with creating a TclTk version of d.label to make postscript text
labels (rather than raster text labels) available in the GIS Manager.

I just tried v.label to make a new set of labels and found that it won¹t run
unless an x display is open. No need to have anything showing in the x
display, it just has to be open.

Is this really necessary? If not, can it be changed?
