I'm using ratpoison on DragonFly without problem, though that sounds not like what you're asking for, given that you asked for a "desktop environment."

Instead of building from source yourself can you try the pkgsrc version? They probably had to make patches to fit it to DragonFly. Xfce is not in the list of top 10 problematic ports John Marino listed in his recent email on the users mailing list, nor is it in this report of unsuccessful builds Justin Sherrill linked to in his latest post on DragonFly BSD Digest: for pkgsrc-2012Q2. If you want to stick with whatever pkgsrc version you're at, assuming it's an earlier one, I suspect that would work too.
