System: NetBSD 4.0.1 NetBSD 4.0.1 (GENERIC.MP) #0: Tue Oct 7 23:15:59 PDT 2008 builds@wb30:/home/builds/ab/netbsd-4-0-1-RELEASE/i386/200810080053Z-obj/home/builds/ab/netbsd-4-0-1-RELEASE/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/GENERIC.MP i386
Architecture: i386
Machine: i386
	I installed modular xorg and xdm. After running xdm I cannot
log in.  There is absolutely no infrastructure inside xdm to integrate
with installed window managers, and it does not ensure that its
default session (xsm) and its failsafe session (xterm) are installed.

Also xdm look changed drastically after installing xinit so I guess it
uses some resources from that package or packages xinit pulls in.

	install modular X server and xdm, try to log in though xdm to
a fresh account

this is about pkgsrc x, not xsrc.
