It produces dot (graphviz) output or json and has no dependencies on
anything GUI related. Just run it on the remote machine and display the
output locally.

ssh root@...ote plotnetcfg | dot -Tpdf | whatever_pdf_viewer

Note that some pdf viewers can't read stdin or require dash as the
parameter to use stdin.

I don't think it's possible to enhance iproute2 to display the network
interface dependencies in an useful way. It's just too complex. It's
not even a (undirected) tree.
