I installed xorg as a package. Then installed xfce package. Made no 
config changes to xorg or the xdm config files. At this point i suspect 
the port of xorg as not being configured correctly. That the default xdm 
config files have statement error causing xdm not to function.

So the big question is has anybody installed the release 7.1 package 
version of xorg and was able to get xdm to function without any config 
file changes?
