Hmm I've just double checked, but overwriting the variable
(wayland_scanner) at configure time does not work with or without this
patch. Did you had in mind replacing it at make time - $ make
wayland_scanner="echo FOO".

I have confirmed that the latter works like a charm before/after this
change (barring the silly mistakes of course).
