I have encountered a problem when using XDM from Xorg 7.2:

When XDM is about to run /usr/local/lib/X11/xdm/Xsession, it doesn't
set environment variables that are present in /etc/login.conf 
(e.g. setenv=..., path=...).

I have discovered that XDM included with Xorg 7.2 doesn't contain a 
patch (which is present in Xorg 6.9) which fixes the above problem:
