There are multiple options out there for embedded GUIs.
The rtems-graphics-toolkit is based on Microwindows/Nano-X
and includes support for jpeg, tiff, and png graphics as
well as Adobe Type 1 and Truetype fonts.

This is in cvs as rtems-graphics-toolkit.  I was testing it last
week on pc386 but I have seen the demos run on arm board
of similar horsepower.
