Glen in my case I use x11/slim build from ports. The current pkg in
http://mirrors.nycbug.org/pub/PC-BSD/packages/9.1-RELEASE/amd64/ has
some issue with intel video using KMS. Slim starts but when it trys to
switch to the wm it hangs up and restarts. I am not sure what the
issue is and I would like to rebuild and test out some things. If I
remove slim and go back to "startx" as my user there is no issue
starting X with my wm.

But as a general use case I would like to use this for  devel/boost as
we use some non-default options for boost.
