Seems related to Xorg bug #1625.

The fix for that bug included X11/keysymdef.h inside X11/Xutil.h. X11 version on my iBook G4 (rather old, in fact) is older than that and does not include it.

OTOH, according to Xlib documentation, they are independent header files, so I guess it is safer to include both on sources using XK_* symbols.

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.
