autogen: add default patch prefix use quoted string variables    
    Place quotes around the $srcdir, $ORIGDIR and $0 variables to prevent
    fall-outs, when they contain space. use exec instead of waiting for configure to finish
    Syncs the invocation of configure with the one from the server.
libXinerama: Set number of screens to 0 on error    
    The documentation of XineramaQueryScreens states that number is always
    set to the amount of screens in the returned array, but if the
    communication with the X server fails, NULL is returned without
    modifying number.
 Remove fallback for _XEatDataWords, require libX11 1.6 for it    
    _XEatDataWords was orignally introduced with the May 2013 security
    patches, and in order to ease the process of delivering those,
    fallback versions of _XEatDataWords were included in the X extension
    library patches so they could be applied to older versions that didn't
    have libX11 1.6 yet.   Now that we're past that hurdle, we can drop
    the fallbacks and just require libX11 1.6 for building new versions
    of the extension libraries.
    At least dwm relies on the fact that number is set to 0 on error, i.e.
    when NULL is returned. As a NULL pointer contains 0 elements and the
    documentation states that number contains the amount of elements of the
    returned array, I think this should be fixed inside libXinerama.
