    On the other hand, most users don't compile Emacs at all; they use
    pre-packaged binaries; those that do compile Emacs can surely install

I don't remember all the details of the problem.  If libXt-dev is not
installed, what happens when configure is correctly built with
autoconf 2.61?  Does compilation fail because libXt-dev includes
things needed for compilation?  Or does compilation work?
