Connecting to the server with "ssh -Y ..." should forward X11
connections back to the desktop system automatically (so long as this
hasn't been disabled in the server's sshd configuration). This is
generally simpler than configuring the desktop system to allow remote
X clients to connect directly.

The server still needs all of the libraries which would be required to
run GRASS on a desktop system, e.g. X libraries, Tcl/Tk or wxPython
for the GUI, GDAL and PROJ for GRASS itself, etc.
