Bug#520405: xterm: bell no longer sounds

I've done so, but I won't be able to see if that makes a difference
until I get home.  I don't think that's it, though -- AFAICT, XkbBell
is in libX11, and my rebuilt xterm doesn't depend on libxkbfile.

Rather, I'm sheepishly starting to suspect a configuration error on my
side; it seems that one key difference between XkbBell and plain old
XBell is that applications can globally hook the former and redirect
its output elsewhere, such as to the headphones I generally only wear
when I'm actually playing some form of media.  (The system on which I
observed the problem is a desktop with a dedicated speaker for system

I'll follow up once I'm actually back in front of the system in
