Question Package(s) To Forward X11


I've installed a RHEL 6.3 64-bit OS however I've selected 'minimal' installation which is just that...minimal packages. If we don't select this, I'm forced to install useless packages I have to maintain / support like Postfix, CUPS, etc etc etc...

My question is I need to forward something like 'xclock' from the RHEL 6.3 server to my Linux workstation & I need to know exactly what packages are required for this to work. I see info the RHEL 6.3 machine using the -X or -Y switch to enable X11 forwarding but something is missing.

I am 100% sure that X11 or 'X' isn't needed at all on the server. There just needs to be X on my workstation. No GUI or DE are installed on RHEL 6.3.

Does anyone know what exactly I would need to install or I'm missing on RHEL to get this going? I've disabled SELinux as well as IPTables/IPTables6.
