Hello, I have some questions about kdm, (on -current, anoncvs pkgsrc HEAD: 

I hazily remember that in kde 3.1 I could set the kdm "shutdown" method to 
"poweroff", rather than "halt": the setting should be in the the KDE 
Control Center -> Login Mananger -> Shutdown tab...

Anyone know why it dissapeared? was that removed by the KDE team, or was 
this a NetBSD mod that wasn't ported to 3.2?  How can I get around this 
(perhaps setting something in kdmrc?)

The other issue is more of a pkgsrc 
thing: /usr/pkg/share/kde/config/kdm/kdmrc is in the +CONTENTS file with a 
md5 checksum, so once one changes the settings, pkg_admin complains with:

/usr/pkg/share/kde/config/kdm/kdmrc fails MD5 checksum

...and this breaks an attempt to do a "make update" since some things are 
not deleted/replaced (It's a while since I've tried this knowing the 
problem - having to recompile kdebase is a RPITA)

Should I send-pr this (it seems to not have been done yet, according to my 
quick search of the GNATS db), and what should be the severity and 
priority? (with the freeze around and all...)
