It isn't an error in the configure script; the problem is that -lX11
derives from the gtk-config script, found with AM_PATH_GTK, which defines
GTK_LIBS, and if AM_PATH_GTK bombs then you get no -lX11. This would
result in the xlib check failing, with a message in config.log like
"Undefined reference to XInitThreads."
At least, that's what would happen if the configure script is remotely
normal. config.log should reveal the truth.
