I tried to remove the directories that was not removed by deinstall
manually, and then installed again, now no complaints about not being
able to uninstall I can now start gdm again, with out any complaints,
but when I run sockstat I cannot see gdm-binary active nor any listen
on udp 177.

Any suggestions?

In /usr/local/etc/gdm/custum.conf

I have only
[xdmcp]
 Enable=true
 Port=177
