This is a proposition for a package, wm/selectwm (or x11/selectwm).

From the DESCR file:
selectwm is a small application (using GTK+) which lets you select your window
manager. It looks for a file named .selectwmrc in the user's directory which
contains a list of window managers.
When you start X it should show a list which lets you choose your window
manager (by double clicking on it with the mouse or with the arrow keys and the
return or space key)

This application is useful if you do not use X all the time. with selectwm in
.xinitrc, you can avoir editing .xinitrc each time you want to run X with a
different window manager.

This package is simple, and only depends on GTK2 (and pkg-config for the
configure phase)

Download the
extract it under pkgsrc/wm
cd selectwm, then make install

echo "/usr/pkg/bin/selectwm" > ~/.xinitrc
