> I used gdm. Auto-login + no hacking required.

i had a look at the dependencies of gdm -- no, thanks.
the whole point of auto login is starting the wm without user interaction.
a fat, ugly beast like gdm is an overkill for that purpose -- a small init  
script that does nothing but starting X and subsequently the wm is  
absolutely sufficient.
since you installed gnome as well, that's probably of no interest to you  
-- gdm should not add anything to gnome's dependencies.
