That might indicate a mismatch between headers and library, although
I'm not certain. The configure test simply checks whether
glXCreatePbuffer exists in the library (checking whether a macro is
defined in a header is more work; you essentially have to compile and
link a test program).

The obvious fix is to conditionalise that code on whether
GLX_PBUFFER_{WIDTH,HEIGHT} are defined, i.e.:

	#if defined(GLX_PBUFFER_WIDTH) && defined(GLX_PBUFFER_HEIGHT)
	    fprintf(stderr, "Creating PBuffer Using GLX 1.3\n");
	    fbc = glXChooseFBConfig(dpy, scr, 0, &elements);
	    if (fbc)
		pbuf_cnt = 0;
		pbuf_attrib[pbuf_cnt++] = GLX_PBUFFER_WIDTH;
		pbuf_attrib[pbuf_cnt++] = width + 1;
		pbuf_attrib[pbuf_cnt++] = GLX_PBUFFER_HEIGHT;
		pbuf_attrib[pbuf_cnt++] = height + 1;
		pbuffer = glXCreatePbuffer(dpy, fbc[0], pbuf_attrib);
		if (pbuffer)
		    glXMakeContextCurrent(dpy, pbuffer, pbuffer, ctx_orig);

All of the code which references pbuffer checks that it is non-null
(even if both the headers and libraries support pbuffers, the X server
might not).
