Where should this be implemented?  Should AC_PATH_X/XTRA be changed to
attempt to use pkgconfig as a first choice and then use AC_PATH_X if it
isn't found?  (I don't know how autoconf deals with dependencies on
optional m4 macros but for now I'm supposing this is possible)

Or does every package using AC_PATH_X need to create the logic for using
pkg-config with optional fallbacks to X11R6 behavior and then try to
push those changes upstream (using autoconf/autoconf-patches until the
changes are accepted and released.)
