Yes. just remove the line in RHOME/library/Rprofile that says
if(interactive()) x11()

or remove the same line from RHOME/src/library/profile/Rprofile.unix and
%  make
in the directory RHOME/src/library/profile/

You can still print graphics using the postscript() driver, but you don't
get the x11() window trying to appear.
