Actually, last time I tried, you had to explicitly disable either Carbon or
X in order for the compilation to succeed, so I think that as long as we
can't build an Emacs that can use both Carbon and X (and tty), we should
automatically disable Carbon if X is specified and automatically disable
X if Carbon is specified.  By default one of the two should be selected,
probably Carbon.
