-* Add Debian-specific patch to uxterm to call validlocale(8) before trying to
-  launch xterm, per recommendation from Recai Oktas.  If a valid locale isn't
-  set, bail out (would resolve #246398).  (This patch would be Debian-specific
-  because validlocale is a Perl utility provided by base-config.)
+* Apply patch from Richard Mortimer to fix the XFree86 X server's ELF object
+  loader to set the PROT_EXEC flag on mmap()ed modules regardless of machine
+  architecture.  (It was already trying to do this, but there are two
+  preprocessor statements involved, and we were only patching one.)
+  See #280384.
+* Rev XTerm to patch #197, which fixes #246398 and several other bugs.
