Default Starting xdm and famd for Xfce 4.6.1 in 5.0.1 i386

I installed the modular Xorg and the meta-pkg Xfce4 and am having 2 issues.
1) setting
xdm=YES xdm_flags=""
in rc.conf does not start the login manager. I have checked and xdm and xinit are installed although the usual files (Xsetup.0, etc) are missing from /etc/X11. I can start xdm from the command line.

2) The documentation in /usr/pkgsrc/sysutils/fam indicates 2 ways to start the fam daemon. I am more familiar with starting using /etc/rc.d and found a famd.sh in /usr/pkgsrc/sysutils/fam/files. I tried running famd.sh with
sh famd.sh
thinking that this would write famd to /etc/rc.d/famd. This didn't work as it did not generate /etc/rc.d/rc.famd, Am I mistaking famd.sh as the
provided famd rc.d(8) script
link to famd.sh
