You'll need the sessionname for wmaker
# ls /etc/X11/Sessions/
Choose the "session" that starts wmaker and change /etc/rc.conf
Make sure the value in /etc/rc.conf matches the filename (case sensitive!)
My guess is it's called 'windowmaker' not 'wmaker'

rc-update add xdm default
this starts /etc/init.d/xdm, which starts the login manager specified
