[PATCH] configure: add AC_LANG_SOURCE call within AC_COMPILE_IFELSE

Documentation states that AC_*_IFELSE has to use AC_LANG_SOURCE or
friends in order to generate the source code to compile.
AC_LINK_IFELSE already handles this, thus convert AC_COMPILE_IFELSE
to silence the final autoconf warnings.

While this patch is not strictly speaking necessary for the full/correct
build of libdrm, it cuts down the configure'n'compile warnings to five.
With the remaining being caused due to type conversion within exynos(4)
and freedreno/kgsl(1). I planning to leave those to someone more aware
of the respective codebase :)
