Automatically detect the X server active display when VirtualGL is enabled

The VirtualGL script used by NoMachine (/usr/NX/scripts/vgl/vglrun) should be updated to automatically search for the active display.

In order to use this feature, edit the command to start the desktop environment by VirtualGL and pass the -d auto option.

For example, set in /usr/NX/etc/node.cfg:
DefaultDesktopCommand "/usr/NX/scripts/vgl/vglrun -d auto /bin/dbus-launch --exit-with-session gnome-session --session=gnome"

This allows to detect the active display of the X server also when it's different than :0. For example on Debian 9, when a user logs-in to the physical console, the GDM greeter can stay running on display :0 while display :1 is given to the GNOME session.
