there are of course a great many applications of GRASS which are just fine to use without any GUI or Xmon or even graphics at all, just run the processing from the command line, so that should be ok. Rough graphics can be had as long as the GRASS PNG driver and apache work: you present the png output dir to the web server. Then you just swap out of your terminal session to a web browser and hit refresh as needed. :)  [I've actually done this in the field over a flaky satellite connection, and it worked remarkably well]
