It's been a while to do things this way but isn't "startx" the better
command?  It calls "xinit" after doing some setup.

I used to use .xinitrc in the way you describe but have long since
relied on GDM.  Taking a fresh look at startx's and xinit's man page
now, it looks like .xinitrc is actually optional and one can do:

  startx sawfish

NB, I've not actually tried this.
