Test Plan

My testing is limited because I do not have anything to ssh into.
Nonetheless, I have checked that the GUI loads, the .desktop loads
the GUI, run "neofetch" in pterm, and [commands] -V (i.e.
--version) as a sanity check.

N.B. I wasn't sure of what to do about this part of the README:

pterm would like to be setuid or setgid, as appropriate, to permit
it to write records of user logins to /var/run/utmp and
/var/log/wtmp. (Of course it will not use this privilege for
anything else, and in particular it will drop all privileges before
starting up complex subsystems like GTK.) By default the makefile
will not attempt to add privileges to the pterm executable at 'make
 install' time, but you can ask it to do so by running configure
with the option '--enable-setuid=USER' or '--enable-setgid=GROUP'.
