i suspect your parentheses aren't balanced or you have too many of them. if
emacs didn't know about x-select-enable-clipboard as a variable, it would
just create it as soon as you call setq on it.

rather, what emacs is telling you is that there is a *function* it doesn't
know about. emacs seems to think that `setq x-select-enable-clipboard t' is
supposed to be a function. that's usually what you get when you do:

((setq some-var blah))

rather than

(setq some-var blah)
