X11R6 was released in May 1994. As you can imagine, supporting X11R5
is a quite low priority for us at this point.

Though in this case, a workaround is pretty easy:

#ifndef XUrgencyHint
#define XUrgencyHint (1 << 8)

No configure time checks necessary. But, I'm not going to
preemptively try and start working around X11R5 problems myself.

As for the Urgency hint, I'm not completely sure if/how it will
be supported in GTK+-2.0 -- I tend to think that it hasn't been
used because people haven't found a use for it, but maybe it's
also a question of it being useless until both apps and wms support
