The way I do it now is modify the xconsole invocation line in the file
/etc/X11/xdm/Xsetup_0 (e.g. using -fn, -geometry, etc. parameters). But
it seems like I was able to change some of the xconsole and xlogin
resources at one time by modifying the /etc/X11/xdm/Xresources_0 file.

I don't know about this one but you may need to add a configuration
line to your /etc/syslog.conf file.
