Subject: xdm(1) on NetBSD-alpha

the following line can be found in "xsrc/xfree86/xc/config/cf/":

 * Definition for compiling on Alpha machines
#ifdef AlphaArchitecture

/* Build the shared XDM greeter on Alpha if it supports shared libs */
#define SharedLibXdmGreet HasSharedLibraries

A shared "libXdmGreet" doesn't work at least under NetBSD-i386. Can any
NetBSD-alpha user running XFree86 4.3.0 on his system please test if
xdm(1) works? The output of "ldd /usr/X11R6/bin/xdm" might be useful, too.

	Kind regards
