Restart and shutdown should work if the polkit settings suggested by
/usr/ports/x11-wm/xfce4-session/pkg-message are done:
To be able to shutdown or reboot your system, you'll have to add a .pkla
file in %%LOCALBASE%%/etc/polkit-1/localauthority/50-local.d directory.
Which looks like this (replace PUTYOURGROUPHERE by your group):
This works on 9.0 here, with dbus but without hal.
