xdm installation is weird

x11/xdm installs example config files
and pkg records this:
TZAV> pkg info -xl xdm
However, in addition, all example files
are also installed under
/usr/local/lib/X11/xdm/, and this
is not recorded by pkg.
This seems to be a problem.
Because any local change to the config
files is lost on update or reinstallation.
It would probably be better
not to copy and example config
files under /usr/local/lib/X11/xdm/.
Instead xdm installation should
inform the user to copy, and modify,
if needed the example scripts to
Then on update/reinstall the actual
config files are not affected.
I've submitted a PR on this 2 years ago:
Am I the only one who uses XDMCP,
i.e. has to modify the default
config settings, and therefore
is affected by this issue?
