When using libXt from git and autoconf 2.60a, the xt.pc file that's created
contains an undefined variable 'datarootdir'. During the configure stage, the
following is spit out:
config.status: creating xt.pc
config.status: WARNING: xt.pc contains a reference to the variable
`datarootdir'which seems to be undefined. Please make sure it is defined.
After installation, running 'pkg-config --exists --print-errors xt; echo $?'
Variable 'datarootdir' not defined in '/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/xt.pc'
The problem is that autoconf 2.60 changed the way datadir is handled; see the
following for details:

adding a definition for datarootdir into the xt.pc is sufficient
still the same bug that libXt's acinclude.m4 needs an updated AC_INCLUDE_DIR
that does a double-eval.
Sorry about the phenomenal bug spam, guys. Adding xorg-team@ to the QA contact so bugs don't get lost in future.
This was fixed by git commit 0c1954765c32c1bd298111cc6bed2f090494c0cf on Fri Oct 27 2006. Closing this bug.
