Description of problem:
The manpage for xterm on RHEL states this:
-l Turn logging on. Normally logging is not supported, due to
security concerns. Some versions of xterm may have logging
enabled. The logfile is written to the directory from which
xterm is invoked. The filename is generated, of the form
depending on how xterm was built.
We need to specify how we build it for RHEL.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. man xterm
Actual Results: get ambiguous documentation.
Expected Results: get definitive documentation.
The menu entry is only present if the code supports it.
(Perhaps sometime I should generate flavors of the manpage
based on xtermcfg.h).
This bug is now fixed with xterm-192-2.EL4 .
As this is ON_QA moving to RHEL4U4Proposed, clearing ACKs.
