The distfiles expected by x11/xdaemon are not in the
distfiles directory on ftp.netbsd.org where they're
supposed to be.
But perhaps instead of worrying about that, a better
question might be why the "xdaemon" package is looking for
distfiles that are obviously intended to contain the new
NetBSD flag logo, instead of the Beastie, which is what
xdaemon is (and should remain) to provide.
If someone wants a NetBSD-logo package, make a NetBSD-logo
package (just another clone of xteddy, where all of this
started, after all...)
I marked this PR as critical/high as if NetBSD cannot even
manage to get this right, it looks real bad...
Revert the 2006/03/02 update to xdaemon and make a new
package to display the new logo. Then, make sure the
full set of logo image files are atually available somewhere
before commiting the new package...
