session manager and user environment in XFCE4

The gdm script installed by xfce4 launches startxfce4.
startxfce4 either run the sysconfig xinitrc (depends on where you
installed it, I install it in /etc/xfce4/ (same goes for the RPMS I
build) or the xinitrc in $HOME/.xinitrc
So, to add stuff to the startup script, simply copy the one from
/etc/xfce4/xinitrc (adjust the path to your install) to $HOME/.xfce4 and
make it executable.
Then edit $HOME/.xnitrc and add what you want.
There is no need to tweak gdm/kdm files.
