What I did (this was a build from CVS) was create a symlink from startxfce4
to /usr/X11R6/bin/XFce4, then added XFce4 to the session list in the KDE
Control Center (System Administration -> Login Manager -> Administrator Mode
-> Sessions). KDM doesn't automatically add window managers to the list
when they get installed.
