Comment (by dj at linuxfromscratch.org):

 1.  Yes, in my local copy I simply forgot about it working in the context
 of Xorg-7 which requires pkg-config.

 2.  localstatedir no as best I can tell.  sysconfdir is required (in case
 a prefix other than /usr is used).  See the manpage /\/etc.

 3.  I'm undecided.  I don't like it much either but was thinking that
 xterm should be installed with X.  On second thought, there is absolutely
 no other reason than for historical's sake, (which is pretty much down the
 drain with X7) to install it with X.

 4. Yes.

 Will be fixed shortly.
