Allow X11 autolaunch to be disabled even if the headers/libraries are there
In an embedded system where the D-Bus session is a core part of the environment, like Maemo, accidentally auto-launching a second session bus (for instance for a concurrent ssh session) is a bad idea - it can lead to a "split brain" situation where half the applications in the GUI are using a different bus. In these controlled environments, it'd be useful to prevent autolaunch from ever happening. (As a side benefit, the changes to also mean that packagers can explicitly --enable-x11-autolaunch, to make sure that failure to find X will make compilation fail cleanly.) Bug: Bug-NB: NB#219964
