I don't see why we'd need anything else specific for X.  If it's not
sufficient for X (or for w32 or ...), then we can add yet more generic
config vars, and then either ignore them on other GUIs or interpret them
as best as we can.

As long as the C code can only be built with 1 GUI at the same time,
this is not a big issue, but yes, that's of course true.

Of course, it should be renamed to `select-enable-clipboard'.
