[RP] Can't get ratpoison to use rxvt

I've been using ratpoison for about 2 days now and really like the concept.
However, there is one thing I can't seem to figure out. In the README it

"By default, ratpoison is compiled using xterm. This is because more
users use xterm as opposed to alternative terms such as rxvt. 

If you do want to use a different terminal program, edit conf.h and
edit the line:

#define TERM_PROG       "xterm" /* command to boot an x term */

to run you're favorite X term."

I didn't see that line in conf.h, so I added it and replaced "xterm" with
However, when I install and start ratpoison it still uses an xterm. I even
tried putting in the full path to rxvt but it still didn't work. Not being a
programmer, i have no idea what i might be doing wrong, so if anyone could
advise I would appreciate it.

Also, now that I think about it - The screenshot provided (screenshots do
sometimes serve a purpose) shows 3 terms open, 2 on top and 1 taking up the
bottom half of the screen. When I start ratpoison, it takes up the entire
screen so I was wondering how to get it to use only a certain portion.
