add libX11 to the binary

The crossfire client won't compile because the OpenGL/GLX interface needs to link against libX11. The attached patch solves it for me. Thanks!

unfortunately I had to revbump, because I don't feel comfortable about applying eautoreconf retroactively on a stable ebuild

Julian, your patch is the right thing to do. Have you posted it to upstream already ? Oh, and thanks a lot for fixing!
