Autoconf configure script and X checking



Hi,

This is something I've seen with synergy 1.2.7 which builds fine on FC4
and older : After an autoreconf on FC development, configure fails to
detect X, the reason being :

(sorry, some line breaks get mangled by sylpheed...)

:^configure:5738: checking for X
configure:5843: g++ -E  conftest.cc
configure:5849: $? = 0
configure:5899: g++ -o conftest -O2 -g -pipe -Wall -Wp,-D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2

arguments to function 'void XrmInitialize()' conftest.cc:46: error: at

configure:5958: result: no

After a quick glance, I see nothing weird in configure.in. Could this be
related to the recent changes in X detection? (it used to be Intrinsic.h
being checked IIRC).

If this seems to be indeed an autoconf bug, I'll gladly report it in
bugzilla.
