Fixed. However there is still one gotcha: when using the same CVS tree
for different platform, one must remove pygist/Make.cfg whenever switching
the platforms. Since pygist/Make.cfg is not used anywhere else but
in setup_xplt.getallparams() function then Make.cfg file should be
created in distutils platform specific temporary directory
(e.g build/temp.linux-i686-2.2).

Fixed both finding X11 libraries and a typo that caused Python failure.
