Opinion on programs for WindowMaker

I've got my LFS (Draco-Linux) up and running, now I want to install XFree86 and WindowMaker (WM). Here is what I would like to know is what are some good programs to load along with WM.

Here is what I want it to feel like, I want some of the same basic functions as KDE or Gnome but not the blot ware it has become. So I if you could tell me what you loaded and why you picked it I would be greatful. Also if it is a package that is hard to find could you be so kind as to pointing out where I can find it.
