Thanks for the patch, I applied it (added once missing save_cppflags="$CPPFLAGS" in the last hunk). Let me know if this solves the problem and then I'll close the bug report

Tue 28 Aug 2012 03:31:19 PM UTC, original submission:

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.
