Hi Sam!

Cc:ing the CLISP-devel upstream mailing list since this "bug" was also
discussed there [1].  Please reply at least to the Debian BTS!

At least on i386 with version 2.44.1 [2]:

- with libxt-dev installed (thus libice-dev and libsm-dev), changing
  AC_PATH_XTRA to AC_PATH_X changes nothing in general

- without libxt-dev, changing AC_PATH_XTRA with AC_PATH_X still doesn't
  change anything WRT to clx (first log).  ./configure generates the
  same output and the same build dir as if I leave AC_PATH_XTRA (second
  log, again without libxt-dev)

IMO the "problem" is not in modules/clx/new-clx/configure, but in
src/configure instead: the check was introduced with r1.159 [4] (r1.14
for modules/clx/new-clx/configure [5]) and at least from the comment it
seems to be specific to SunOS 4.x.

If I'm correct (which I doubt), shouldn't this check be wrapped around
"#ifdef SunOS ... #endif"?

I've everyday used a CLISP built without the libxt-dev dependency for
now 5 days, together with StumpWM [6], and I haven't experienced any
difference or bug.  For this reason, together with the fact that Debian
don't build on SunOS 4.x, I removed the libxt-dev dependency from clisp
Build-Depends: and clisp-dev Depends: [7].

Let's see if I break something ;-)

Thx, bye,
Gismo / Luca
