Description robmessick 2014-03-13 22:50:00 UTC
Installing the GDM port or package always overwrites the ${PREFIX}/etc/pam.d/gdm. The port should not overwrite this configuration file.

How-To-Repeat: # touch /usr/local/etc/pam.d/gdm
# cd /usr/ports/x11/gdm && make install

I think this should be solved via @sample in the pkg-plist, e.g. like security/sudo does.

@sample-ify gdm files in $PREFIX/etc

I recently ran into a similar issue (/usr/local/etc/gdm/Init/Default not being a config file) and rolled a simple patch (attached) to convert all gdm files installed in /usr/local/etc into @sample files.
