[PATCH xserver] dix-config: fix incorrect definition of _XTYPEDEF_POINTER

Problem was introduced in commit 60014a4a98. _XTYPEDEF_POINTER falsely
advertizes type "pointer" as being defined while it is not. This "pointer"
type is needed by fontsproto fontstruct.h.

Usage of "pointer" type has been removed in many xserver files. This may
be sufficient to fix the original problem. Refer to tinderbox for details
on build breaks.
