A fink user reported that building xboard on OS X 10.8 failed to find the Xt
headers. Apple (or XQuartz, not sure how far up the vendor tree this goes)
formerly supplied a /usr/include/X11 -> /usr/X11 symlink but no longer does.
As a result, AC_CHECK_HEADER no longer finds x11 headers because they are not
in the default search paths. The standard x11 detection mechanism succeeds and
finds the needed additional -I flags, but then configure.ac does not use them
when doing its own tests.

Here is the good way (from xboard-4.5.2a line 350):


(though it probably should save and restore CPPFLAGS also?)

Lines 128 and 154 each fail because they don't propagate X_CFLAGS.
