Thanks for taking the time to look over these changes and clear up my

Yes, this can probably be rearranged after extension_string is moved so they 
are orthogonal.  I'll leave that to someone else as it's not really something 
I can test, though.

I can't quite do that, if I want to achieve my goal of using AIGLX to mean 
'turn on AIGLX on any platform', otherwise turning on AIGLX will try to build 
the DRI loader, even when DRI isn't available.

Anyhow, updated patch follows which (I hope) sticks closer to the original 
logic whilst introducing a new automake conditional.
