what is /etc/X11-builtin?  i've never heard of that and it does
not exist in the netbsd-8 or -current trees.  is there something
in your configuration that sets /etc/X11-builtin normally that
is not working now?

xdm was recently updated, and Xresources needs to be updated as
well, but this problem seems very odd to me.
