You can install which ever applications you want, but it doesn't
mean they all work as you expected :)  But seriously, since the X server
and the clients don't need to be running on the same node, you should be
able to run any X clients (firefox, for instance) inside a vkernel by
setting DISPLAY environment variable to point to the vkernel host which
is also running X server and accepts X protocol from the vkernel.
Or if anyone wants to step up and:

1) get Xvfb working so Xvnc+Xvfb could work as a VNC display
2) Just get a vncserver building in pkgsrc
that could work too..

(thought I'd mention it)
