PIXMAN_FB_ACCESSORS is not something users can turn on or off.

Instead it is defined at the top of of the file
pixman-access-accessors.c, and then pixman-access.c is #included. This
lets the code in pixman-access.c be compiled twice, once with accessor
functions enabled, and once without.

The pixman_image_set_accessors() function is always available, but
note that if you use it, performance may be poor.
