There's a nifty little package in ports called "numlockx"
(/usr/ports/x11/numlockx) that worked for me in blackbox/
fluxbox, xfce, and enlightenment, but doesn't seem to work
with GNOME, or at least the way I'm calling GNOME now
(gdm on ttyv0). I need to get annoyed enough to figure
out why, I guess.
I just installed it and put "numlockx" in ~/.xinitrc, before
the lines starting the window manager ... or much of anything
else. Like I said, it worked as long as I was calling "startx";
I guess now that gdm is starting GNOME for me, I need to find
another place to call it from...
