Cairo based bitmap graphics output should work if cairo and R have been compiled without xlib support. 2.7.1 gives the "X11 is not available" message in this case when run interactively, and from my reading the png documentation, calling png(filename=..., type="cairo") should work. Cairo itself is happy without xlib.
