Default automounting devices on Xfce4 with hotplugd does not work

OPENBSD 5.4 and XFCE 4.10

Using hotplugd and the instructions given here: (sorry not able to post links, please copy/paste)

The above instructions does not seem to work, even after a reboot.

Is there any alternative way to auto mount devices in Xfce 4 and OpenBSD?

I have dbus-daemon running on system startup and I use xdm to launch xfce4-session with the ck-launch-session (to enable shutdown and reboot from within xfce4 in .xsession)

.xsession file:
ck-launch-session xfce4-session

Also thunar-volman seems to be missing in OpenBSD and it appears that functionality is not provided.

Any answers would be much appreciated.
