Changes since 1.2: +12 -23 lines

Update gdm to 2.4.4.7 (Fully GNOME 2, gnome v1 libraries are not required
anymore).

Update provided by Min Sik Kim via pkgsrc-wip, with minimal changes by me.

Changes:

2.4.4.7 stuff:

- Fix build problem caused by intltool (fixes #130234)

- Translation update (Zygimantas Berucka)

2.4.4.6 stuff:

- Fixes xdmcp session counting (fixes #126465)

- The programs that want to talk to gdm check ownership of /tmp/.gdm_socket
  for added paranoia

- Fix assert failure when starting Xnest (fixes #127780)

- Time for the fail delay is in microseconds (Leena Gunda, fixes #128507)

- Translation updates (Maxim Dziumanenko, Dmitry G. Mastrukov, Russian team,
  Andras Timar, Sanlig Badral, Paul Duffy, David O'Callaghan,
  Jordi Mallach, Jordi Mas, Guntupalli Karunakar, Andras Timar)

2.4.4.5 stuff:

- Brown paper security bag: ~/.Xauthority could be left readable
  after logout

- gecos info (face browser user name) didn't get through if non-utf8
  (Frederic Crozat) (fixes mandrake #5309)

- Translation updates (another brown paper bag, these went in over
  the last month) (Kjartan Maraas, Andras Timar, Danilo Segan,
  Ales Nyakhaychyk, Asmund Skjaeveland, Gustavo Maciel Dias Vieira,
  Augusta Marques da Silva, Richard Allen)

GDM is the GNOME Display Manager, it is the little proggie that runs
in the background, runs your X sessions, presents you with a login box
and then tells you to piss off because you forgot your password. It
does pretty much everything that you would want to use xdm for, but
doesn't involve as much crack.  It doesn't use any code from xdm, and
has a more paranoid and safer design overall.  It also includes many
features over xdm, the biggest one of which is that it is more user
friendly, even if your X setup is failing.  The goal is that users
should never, ever have to use the command line to customize or
troubleshoot gdm.  It of course supports xdmcp, and in fact extends
xdmcp a little bit in places where I thought xdm was lacking (but is
still compatible with xdm's xdmcp).
