I think we should trust autoconf -- it provides a macro to test for
X11.  Note that finding the right location of the X11 tree is very
tricky.  IIRC, using the X11 tests of autoconf increases the size of
the configure script by about 30kByte...

Who is God?  I don't oppose to a test of `bool' (as I've written
recently in another mail).  I opposed to convert all boolean tests in
groff to `bool' by myself since this a very time consuming task which
is mainly done for aesthetical reasons.

I don't understand what you are complaining here.  Please rephrase.

It wasn't me, IIRC.
