Hu, Suse is always scary.

Well, but ./configure shall not stop in that circumstances and report an
error, but just note that there are no SGI mesa widgets around.
And then it should not try to comple itself, because this would be
incorrectly indicated as an error.
We also need another option for the configure to stop when the
compilation fails. This should be the _default_.
The current behaviour to just continue and log the error might
be convenient for some, but is it very surprising for other people and
non-standard. If a build fails somewhere, it must stop,
unless a special flags is given to override this behavious.
