Subject: odd defaults when building kde

I recently built kde packages (from the pkgsrc-2005Q2 tag) on a 2.0 
machine.  For some reason, the generated kdmrc file assumed that a 
number of commands were in /usr/pkg/bin.  How did this happen?

# Default is "/usr/pkg/bin/xrdb"
# Default is "/usr/pkg/bin/xterm -ls -T"
# Default is "/usr/pkg/bin/xterm"
# Default is "/usr/pkg/bin/X"

I built the packages while logged in remotely from an xterm.  I do not 
think I had X forwarding on, but /usr/X11R6/bin was probably in my path 
at build time.
