Bug#1218: xbase install fails

   I'd be reluctant to arrange that by default start-stop-daemon exit
   with a non-zero exit status when the file specified with --exec
   doesn't exist.  Doing so would make it harder to catch errors where
   the file specified with --exec was wrong.

I agree.

I consider the problem a bug in xbase, so I'm making a new revision
which fixes it.  This revision will check whether /usr/bin/X11/xdm
and /usr/bin/X11/xfs exist before running start-stop-daemon to stop
them.  It will be available by this evening.
