>Release:        NetBSD 3.1_RC3
System: NetBSD Hochstuhl 3.1_RC3 NetBSD 3.1_RC3 (HOCHSTUHL) #1: Wed Sep 20 13:33:13 CEST 2006 hf@Hochstuhl:/var/obj/netbsd-builds/3/i386/sys/arch/i386/compile/HOCHSTUHL i386
Architecture: i386
Machine: i386

	In the x11/gdm Makefile, the line

SUBST_SED.desktop+=     -e 's|^\#Logo=.*$$|Logo=@EXPANDED_PIXMAPDIR@/NetBSD.xpm|g'

	attempts to patch the default.conf config file with the proper
	path to the NetBSD logo. Unfortunately, nothing ever sets
	@EXPANDED_PIXMAPDIR@, which results in the unhelpful
	gdm/default.conf entry

# Logo shown in the standard greeter.

	-- no logo.

	Start gdm after update, find the logo is gone.
	Browse /usr/pkg/share/gdm/defaults.conf.

	Set @EXPANDED_PIXMAPDIR@ properly. Left as an exercise to the
	maintainer -- the Makefile is too long to wrap my mind around
