No its not possible. You need an xserver to run gui apps.

Ill need to use the gui application remotely from a workstation that has x windows.I just want the installation on the server. Is that practical.

Its not possible because the xserver will be a dependency for that package and it won't install unless an xserver exists on the system that its being installed.
