[tex-live] Unneeded linking in mf and xdvi-xaw?

our Debian tools complain that mf and xdvi-xaw are linked against
libXext, libSM and libICE, although the don't use any symbols from them.

SM and ICE seem to come from X_PRE_LIBS and this in source/configure

if test "x$ac_cv_lib_ICE_IceConnectionNumber" = x""yes; then

I'm not educated enough in this configure stuff to grok the part where
this monster variable is set. But I tend to believe that the Debian tool
is right, and the linking is wrong. At least for mf and xdvi-xaw, which
is why I'll apply the following patch for the time being. Comments?

Regards, Frank
