A little extreme, but a good test ^_^

These are larks - unnecessary.  The X11 checks should work  
automatically on a clean system, but these options may help when  
there are problems in configure on dirty systems.

--with-opengl-libs=/usr/X11R6/lib should be the only option needed.   
Without it, the opengl checks might accidentally find the OSX version  
of the opengl libs, not the X11 version, and this may be what is  
confusing NVIZ and causing the crash.

I haven't tried building with the internal python interface yet, and  
I don't think it has anything to do with the wxpython GUI, but I  
could be wrong.

I think this one is automatic, so there's no need to explicitly set it.

All generalizations are dangerous, even this one.
