Default Installing Xfce

Guys I've been running FreeBSD in textmode for quiet some time now and decided to install X11 so that it could be used for other things as well.
This time I wanted to try Xfce. In ports I saw x11-wm/xfce, xfce4, xfce4-desktop, and so on. So which one should I install (one which gives me complete desktop env. without installing too many extra ports like KDE-lite. and also there is no login manager for Xfce like Gnome and KDE, so what are my options for this. Can I install GDM without installing much of Gnome ports, cause I know if I install kdm it is going to install half of KDE .

Thanks
