xdm is the classic X11 Display Manager, using the Athena Widgets toolkit.
While it lacks in support for accessibility, internationalization, or other
modern features, it is still used in some sites for historical reasons.

This release collects 7 years worth of bug fixes and code cleanups,
including the fix for CVE-2013-2179 that was previously distributed
as a patch against the prior release.

Heads up to packagers: the config files have switched from *.cpp files that
are processed by the C Pre-Processor to *.in files processed by sed, so you
will have to adjust any local patches you apply to the configs.

      Mark LogPanic as noreturn per gcc's suggestion
      Get rid of an extraneous ; at the end of a C source line
