I still think this will prevent the executable from running when it's
installed on a machine that has no X11 libraries. Maybe GNU/Linux is
immune to this, but not architectures where I know for certain that
the dynamic loader eagerly resolves transitive dependencies
regardless of needing to resolve any symbols within them. (The XLIBS
dependencies belong on vm-dpy-x11.so, not on the VM itself.)
However, evil intentions may have caused me to exclude some
configurations from building properly -- including internal
(statically-linked) B3D support in the VM.
I have flagged your message as important and put it in the bugs
queue. Assuming I can reproduce the problem I will fix it. If I
can't reproduce the problem then I will at least figure out a way for
you to tell configure to add the dependencies you need to the link
