Use your package management tools instead, for instance,
on fedora, using yum, I'd do:
find out what package name for a fundamental X file:
# rpm -qf /usr/X11R6/bin/X
do 'yum remove xorg-x11' to remove it and all its
# yum remove xorg-x11-6.8.2-30
this will spit out huge list of dependencies
to be removed as well; inspect it, and hit 'y'
You might have to do a few iterations to get
rid of all gui stuff.
