I can't really tell you how such a test would be implemented, but
consider for a moment that you might not be interested in what the
build system, i.e., the one you are running configure on right now,
has in terms of capabilities.  Right?  If so, then a test at program
run time would seem more appropriate than one at configure time.  That
way you also get a chance to test that particular X server which the
user might want to use ATM, e.g., a remote one.

Typical distribution build daemons have very little software installed
and most likely not a running X server.

Hope that helps.
