From the autoconf info file:
The following macros check for operating system services or

Try to locate the X Window System include files and
libraries. If the user gave the command line options
`--x-includes=DIR' and `--x-libraries=DIR', use those
directories. If either or both were not given, get the
missing values by running `xmkmf' on a trivial `Imakefile'
and examining the `Makefile' that it produces. If that fails
(such as if `xmkmf' is not present), look for the files in
several directories where they often reside. If either
method is successful, set the shell variables `x_includes'
and `x_libraries' to their locations, unless they are in
directories the compiler searches by default.
