I suppose this is a consequence of the gtkosx integration patches being activated when compiling on OS X, even if the desire is not to compile for the integrated version, but for a version intended to run on the
Unix-compatible OS X interface (XQuartz?)?

I suppose we should surround the OS X specific patches not by #ifdef __APPLE__, but by a compiler switch set in the configure process, through an option --with-gtkosx, so that people could still compile the Linux
version of XBoard on OS X?

Xboard build process failed during in Xaw/xboard.c, due to XK_Meta_L symbol
not being defined (along with many other XK_* symbols).

Seems X11/keysym.h (which in turn includes X11/keysymdef.h) was missing. I do
not know if it gets included by some other header in other platforms, but in
my OS X (powerpc-apple-darwin8.11.0) it did not.

Attached patch fixes the problem.
