System: NetBSD 3.99.15 NetBSD 3.99.15 (GENERIC-1.696-20060125) #8: Wed Jan 25 04:59:39 ICT 2006 i386

	The distfiles expected by x11/xdaemon are not in the
	distfiles directory on 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...

	cd .../pkgsrc/x11/xdemon
	make checksum

	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...
