It will if you want SDL support. We check for SDL though and I've
expected that the recursively check for X11, or at least expect the
package manager to take care of it via dependencies in the -devel

At least the qemu-xen patch cannot be done this way, since we cannot
upstream APPEND_LIBS. I mean they may want to accept such a patch but
they may also have their own build system specific way of achieving

We probably need to involve APPENDS_LIBS in the invocation of qemu-xen's
