I'm not sure if it's any cleverer, but I would probably make a call to pgrep(1) instead of relying on the existence of a file that might exist, even if X isn't running (unusual, but it does happen now and then, here at least) - something like if (pgrep "Xorg") then echo "X is up." exit 0 else echo "No X yet..." exit 1 fi ... should do the trick. And bear in mind that ~/.zlogin is run *after* ~/.zshrc, whereas ~/.zprofile is run *before* it. It might matter, depending on what you are trying to do.
