Actually I do not think it is that simple, e.g. IIRC the openbsd
people have their own solution for non requiring root rights.

Also with your patch people may accidentally end up build the
root-wrapper on Linux without libdrm resulting in a root-wrapper
which will just always launch the xserver as root.

If you're doing this with certain platforms in mind, maybe
we need to only not check for libdrm on those platforms ?
