[pkg-fso-maint] Bug#861717: nodm init script checks for NODM_XINIT even though nodm now ignores that variable

Package: nodm
Version: 0.13-1
Severity: normal

>From the README.md file:

   Was used by older versions of nodm as the path to the xinit program, but it
   is now ignored.

Also, nodm does not depend upon the xinit package (nor any other package
that depends upon xinit), and so will fail to start on systems which, for
example, don't install xinit and instead start a single X application, such
as minimal kiosk systems.

References to NODM_XINIT should probably be removed from the init script.
