I'd never played with union mounts before.  I have now.  Seems like a

In that state it was definitely usable (I drew my shift-pattern diagram
with it in that state).  It was just very plain-looking.  I didn't do
anything particularly challenging with it so I don't know if the lack
of config/Xresources limited anything.

I checked my old workstation and it didn't set "XAPPLRESDIR" in
"/etc/profile".  I don't know why I never had an issue with 'xfig' before
now.  It seems to be sorted out with the help of your explanations.

I think the last update coincided with 'xfig's switch from "transfig"
to "fig2dev".  The package './configure' script defaults
"--with-appdefaultdir" to "${datarootdir}/X11/app-defaults".  The default
value for "${datarootdir}" is "${prefix}/share".  I suppose during
preparations for the update the defaults were just accepted and the
PLIST updated to reflect the default build.
