Are you starting xdm(1) at boot?

If not, create a file at ~/.xinitrc and add this line:
Code:
exec startxfce4
See FAQ 11.5

If you are using xdm(1) then ~/.xinitrc is not parsed and you must select the desktop from the login screen (I think, I don't use display managers).

EDIT: I think you have to add the line to ~/.xsession if you are using xdm(1)

EDIT2: Make sure the file is executable with a shebang at the top.

I use xdm(1) and set up .xsession to source my .xinitrc

Also, if you install consolekit from packages and set dbus to start on boot in /etc/rc.conf.local

Then ensure you have a line like this in your .xinitrc
Code:
exec ck-launch-session dbus-launch startxfce4
you will be be able to shutdown and reboot from within xfce

Default Disable *and remove* fvwm and cwm

To ensure clarity, you don't have to run either of them, but they cannot be removed: they are in the base system.
