LaMont and I discussed this on IRC.

Turns out the AC_PATH_XTRA autoconf macro is garbage.

Unfortunately, further research reveals AC_PATH_X is too.

You can build Xlib-based applications with only x-dev and libx11-dev
(which depends on libx11-6) installed, but autoconf doesn't seem to know
that.  The file lists for these three packages are attached.

I think this means the AC_PATH_X and AC_PATH_XTRA macros are buggy.  Is
there any change the upstream autoconf people would agree?
