Summary

Starting from bug 222844 to update the code snippets for starting XFCE to use
xinitrc script shipped with the package. Replace snippet for other window
managers as well to just call exec or source script to execute.
Looking at the source code of xsession in XDM, the script is execed anyway.
Tested both sourcing the packages supplied xinitrc and adding an exec call
to a plain text file worked as expected on FreeBSD-CURRENT.
