xterm-264: cannot load font
Presumably you don't have xfonts-terminus installed. :)
It turns out that this message was from an executable just before I tagged
#264, differing by this item in xterm.log.html:
* replace a null-pointer check with check for empty string in
xtermOpenFont, to eliminate a warning message from patch #263
Either way, the executables that I've compiled seem to work...
I thought that, but xfd shows the same (rather large) font,
and xlsfonts says I have some 24-point terminus fonts.
So (unless it was complaining about not finding a matching bold font),
I'm keeping in mind that there may be a bug to find in the message.
Another symptom to add to the pile:
If I build xterm 264 from source and install to $HOME/opt/xterm,
$HOME/opt/xterm/bin/xterm works fine (using the correct font). Even
when xterm 264-1 is installed.
So this would seem to be a problem only encountered with the flags
used to build Debian xterm, I guess?
Possibly. I'll check down that path as well. (Also, I'm only assuming
that my -xrm option produces the same result as the xrdb).
I'll look into the package options, etc. (I was thinking of adding
dpkg/rpm scripts to xterm anyway, as I've been doing with other programs).
