Bug#520405: xterm: bell no longer sounds

Package: xterm
Version: 242-1
Severity: normal

Sending ^G to xterm 242 with visual-bell mode off (as it is by
default) has no effect.  The visual bell still works fine, as do
auditory bells from other applications.  xterm 241 had no such
problem.  I don't have time to debug the issue at the moment, but I
observe that xterm 242's top changelog entry mentions reworking the
relevant logic, in the course of which a bug presumably slipped in:

	<li>fix configure check for <code>XkbBell</code> and provide
	    appropriate parameter for it.

Could somebody please take a look?
