The way you're going about it is pretty much the correct way, that said your point on line segment routine is very inefficient.

The algorithm should be something like this (assuming orientation predicate):

is point on line-segment(s1,s2) -> bool
    if point not in aabb of s1 s2 then
       return false

    return (orientation of point to s1-s2 == collinear)
