I think it's a bug for the NetBSD base system to put /etc/rc.d/xdm in
the etc.tgz set; it should be in xetc.tgz, which would not be installed
if one chooses not to use the XFree86 implementation frmo the base
system.  Similarly for other X-related things.

That doesn't quite solve the problem, though: pkgsrc would still need to
cater for systems that are migrating frmo XFree86 to Xorg and have the
/etc/rc.d/xdm from the base system.

I don't think so.  I think "xdm" is the right name for this script,
regardless of what other problems we have making it work.
