NetBSD kaworu.studiolab45.net 4.0 NetBSD 4.0 (KAWORU) #4: Wed Apr 23 18:55:11 CDT 2008  root@kaworu.studiolab45.net:/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/KAWORU i386
>Description:
When a new version of x11/xdm is installed, instead of preserving the already-existing configuration files and shell scripts in /usr/pkg/lib/X11/xdm, it overwrites them.  This is an annoyance to those of us who customize these files, in particular those of us who want to grant XDMCP access, as by default XDMCP access is not allowed in the default configuration.  Other packages do not do this.
>How-To-Repeat:
Deinstall and reinstall the x11/xdm package.
>Fix:
Check if these files already exist and, if they do and there have been no changes to their format, leave them alone during the installation.

 I had solved this once before, so feel free to assign this to me.

 The useful configure switches are
 --with-xdmconfigdir
 --with-xdmscriptdir

 But I think the Makefile.am's need to be patched to install to other 
 location too.
