When updating RT ticket #40144 (build multiple clients at once), I found
portion in xaw-client.m4 that defaults to Xaw3D when --with-3d is not given
and client != xaw. This portion is currently not used at all as it is
guaranteed that client = xaw at that point. It's left from days when xaw was
among automatically selected clients (client = yes).
Problem I encountered when #40144 again enabled it (client = all) is that
checks if Xaw3D can be used are not good enough. It just checks that library
exist, but there is no check for headers (xaw3d dev packet). So, in typical
linux installation Xaw3D gets selected by default even though compilation
with it will fail.
Attached patch just removes that (currently unused) portion. Later, with
#40144, xaw client will use Xaw3D only if explicitly requested with
