build: glx: Lower gl version to work with libglvnd

Marvin Schmidt requested to merge marv/xserver:build-libglvnd-gl-version into master

When using mesa with libglvnd support, mesa will no longer install the gl, glx, egl pkg-config files but instead let libglvnd provide them. libglvnd maintainers decided to change the versioning as it was mesa-specific previously. Now the libraries have versions of the API they expose[1]. This causes problems when building the X server:

checking for glproto >= 1.4.17 gl >= 9.2.0... no configure: error: Package requirements (glproto >= 1.4.17 gl >= 9.2.0) were not met:

Requested 'gl >= 9.2.0' but version of gl is 1.2

Lower the version requirement to 1.2 to allow building against libglvnd provided libraries
