Description of Problem: rxvt does not honor .Xdefaults

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 2.7.8-3

How Reproducible: every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Execute `strace -o foo.txt rxvt` and then quit rxvt.
2. Read foo.txt in a text editor.
3. You should see something similar to:

   open("/home/username/.Xdefaults", O_RDONLY) = 4

Actual Results: You do not see the rxvt process open the user's .Xdefaults file.

Expected Results: rxvt should read and honor .Xdefaults

Additional Information:
Comment 1 Harald Hoyer 2002-03-25 08:58:10 EST
Put them to .Xresources, then they will be loaded by xrdb on X11 startup. 
Native .Xdefaults reading is deprecated.
