Add items to GDM Session list

Ive played around with gdm.conf and a few other things but how do I add another window manager (enlightenment e17 from CVS) to the "Sessions" list in GDM ???

There is no auto-install script and make install doesnt add it.

I can get into enlightenment with a failsafe terminal in X but it would be nice to load it without xterm sitting there.

Using Slackware 10, i386 with 2.4.28 kernel. Default WM is KDE 3.2


Edit: It seems that my gdm.conf points to /etc/X11/gdm/Sessions but there is no directory or file in that location.

Seems like I found it after a long long time playing around with it.

For all those who want to know, it's in a shell script called Xsessions

I thought it would read from a conf file :S
