On a machine with native xorg installed and kde from pkgsrc I can not start
a kde session via kdm. The .xsession-errors file says:

OSTYPE: not found
PAGER: not found

PGPPATH: not found

dcopserver: 'iceauth' not found in path, aborting.

iceauth: not found
kdeinit: DCOPServer could not be started, aborting.
Warning: connect() failed: : Connection refused

# The PATH for the Session program.

(side note: I love that there are two kdmrc files, the other at
