Another way is to look at its log file in the /var/log directory:

$ echo $DISPLAY
:0.0
$ head -4 /var/log/XFree86.0.log

XFree86 Version 4.0.3 / X Window System
(protocol Version 11, revision 0, vendor release 6400)
Release Date: 16 March 2001

It works on SuSE 7.1 with XFree 4.x but I suspect it doesn't work for
older X-servers/distributions.
