Because it would never reach my eyes, if you didn't tell me. And a BSD
logo is not the default there anyway (see below).

I have installed wdm version 1.20_3 as in:
root at oak:/usr/ports/x11/wdm# less distinfo
MD5 (wdm/wdm-1.20.tar.gz) = 7d3a5debe5005ee481e821951d4c9194
root at oak:/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/wdm# less pixmaps/README
The files in this directory can be used the "logo" for
the login panel. "gnuLogo.xpm" is the "default" included
by Login. The alternates can be used by specifying
DisplayManager*wdmLogo /.../pixmaps/<file> at runtime.
However, if I manually run wdmReconfig afterwards, I will get a
beastie picture indeed.
2Kris: Shouldn't this be done by "make install"? If you ever find the
time to fix it, please use this picture:

Yes, I know and I appreciate your input very much.

I don't need it. XDM is fine for my needs.

P.S.: Does anybody know a nicer replacement for xchooser?
