X is already in Muffinman rootfs. Check the documentation in 

Anyway, if you want to run X, just install Jlime and
export DISPLAY=:0.0
Xfbdev -screen 320x240x32 -rgba rgb -br -hide-cursor 

(It is more comfortable if you set the network first,
so you can test remotely.)

Somebody already tested the Abiword on Jlime feed : 

And there are, at least, fluxbox, openbox, matchbox to install
(using opkg install..).

Cursor buttons as mouse cursor movements : it should be easy.
I have written a similar app for GameRunner which sends X
events (mouse, keys) when you use touchscreen or accelerometers.
Somebody should write the same, just for the kery, to send
mouse X events. Tip: check xdotool source code, or GR game control.
