I suggest putting that question to the mailing list(s).
If they are disabled by default, the variable names should probably
have the "NO_" removed, and accept 0/1 values, e.g.
GRASS_GLX_PIXMAPS=0 # force off
GRASS_GLX_PIXMAPS=1 # force on
# anything else = default = off for now, on if the feature eventually
# becomes usable on the majority of systems
