I'm trying to use VNC to log into my FreeBSD laptop from another laptop

I finally managed to log in using Xvnc and gdm. This is awesome. I'll be
happy for days now. :D
Here's how: I found I was getting lots of weird file descriptor errors
in /var/log/messages. Google tells me it's some subtle bug involving
6.2-RELEASE and xinetd. So I switched to inetd [note, no 'x'] and it
worked perfectly first time.
There is a tiny fly in my happy ointment though. My Xfce4 settings
appear to be different. Usually I use gnome-panel when I log in locally.
My remote login is using xfce4-panel. Rather than go through setting up
my desktop how I like it /again/, I would prefer to figure out why my
local settings aren't being used.
Probably a good symlinking would fix this, but I can't quite see what I
should be linking to where.
