Actually, I think DISTCHECK_CONFIGURE_FLAGS is exactly what Bryce wants
to use for this.

Bryce has Xwayland installed in a non-standard location so as to not
interfere with his system binaries, so we don't want anything in
Makefile.am to be specific to his installation anyway.

make distcheck

should make the test pass just fine, and I think it's reasonable to
expect that without any good way to detect Xwayland's location.

FWIW, I still think the patch that started this thread is worthwhile,
though.  :)
