Keyboard Layout settings from lts.conf

This update to ldm-2.0.7 makes it possible to set the XKB* keyboard 
layout options as specified in lts.conf.

Prior to this Fedora had no way of setting the keyboard layout because 
we do not use which uses ugly hacks to write an xorg.conf 
based on lts.conf options.

ldm-2.0.7 also adds translations for Portuguese (pt) and Greek (el).

NOTE: Non-default screen.d sessions like xdmcp will not set the keyboard 
layout from this fix. I intend on fixing that in a different way in 
ltsp-client later.

Upgrade Note:
Be sure to upgrade this package inside your LTSP client chroot which is 
likely in /opt/ltsp/i386. ldm is useless on the server.
