I think it should work if you simply copy the whole WebKitBuild
directory from your server to your PC (with something like rsync) and
then use then simply script run-minibrowser to start WPE.

On the other hand, if you are interested in running WPE on a server that
doesn't have a GPU that is possible with Xvfb+x11vnc+mesa-llvmpipe.

1. Take this script : http://sprunge.us/YjQ8Pv
2. Run it like ./start-xvfb-vnc.sh 2176
3. Connect a VNC client to server.ip.ad.dres:2176
4. Run WPE with the run-wpe-x11 script after exporting DISPLAY=:2176

Hope this helps
