 Apparently something in the base system has changed, which affects
 rebuild of this port when it is already installed.  Since this change to
 the base system isn't very old, and most ports testing are done on clean
 systems, using tinderbox or poudriere or similar software, this has gone
 through the cracks.  For now, I suggest you remove xdm before
 reinstalling it, since all files should be removed in the
 deinstallation.  If xdm leaves files behind, then that is a separate
 issue.  however that would show up on a tinderbox run, and I can build
 xdm fine in my tinderbox.
