I found that, upon installing new window managers, they would not appear in my gdm menu. They had entries in /etc/X11/Sessions, and so forth. I ran grep and find all over /etc to find why certain wm's were in gdm's menu and others not.

Upon comparing all the installed file lists from the different WM's, I found the answer:

The WM's apparently need .desktop entries in /usr/share/xsession
look there.

Well, for me only gnome appeared, but i could change to fvwm only after emerging fvwm-crystal. I didn't have to do anything extra.
