I use quartz-wm all the time with modular-xorg-xquartz.  If there is
something else I can use from pkgsrc, I'd be interested in learning how
to set that up.

Just fyi, in pkg/etc/mk.conf, on a recent imac, (not M1) I've been using
 X11_TYPE=               modular
to get everything to compile, but I'm not sure if it still required.

modular-xorg-xquartz-1.17.2nb6 X11 server for Mac OS X
quartz-wm-1.3.1nb1  Aqua Window Manager for the X Window System on OS X
