7.0 configure of xdriinfo

The configure script for xdriinfo checks for glXGetProcAddress. This is
only part of the not-yet released GLX 1.4 spec. Up to GLX 1.3 only
glXGetProcAddressARB is available.

This basically forbids building xdriinfo on systems with the proprietary
nvidia driver (+ libGL) installed. I changed this to
glXGetProcAddressARB, as it is supported in Mesa as well, and even Mesa
uses it internally more likely (e.g. in glut) than the GLX 1.4 function.

Any objections?
