                            Patch #260 - 2010/6/20

     * modify  to  work  around  problem linking to recent PCRE
     * extend  renderFont  resource  to allow deferred switch to TrueType
       fonts   without   affecting  existing  resource  settings  (Debian
     * modify configure macro CF_X_TOOLKIT to work around omission of ICE
       library from ".pc" file (report by Miroslav Lichvar).
     * change  configure  script default for --enable-broken-st i.e., the
       brokenStringTerm   feature)   to   normally   enable  it.  If  the
       corresponding  resource  is  enabled,  this  feature eliminates an
       apparent  freeze  of  xterm  when  sending mis-encoded data to the
       screen (Debian #584801).
     * document in manpage some actions which were overlooked:
          + readline-button
          + scroll-lock
          + set-8-bit-control
     * undo  a  change  to limit-check in ScrnRefresh in [264]patch #257,
       which broke fastScroll feature (Debian #584841).
     * modify  handling  of  brokenLinuxOSC  and brokenStringTerm to also
       sound the bell.
     * add  control/D  and  control/Q  to controls which will cause early
       exit from control string per brokenStringTerm resource.
     * improve documentation of brokenStringTerm resource in manpage.
