Maybe something to do with PAM or ConsoleKit (they do manage logins/passwords/rights and stuff). I also don't have either of those installed as I consider them useless for me :P (Being able to get rid of bloat like that is pretty much the reason I use Gentoo.) That would be "-pam -consolekit" in make.conf.
Runs fine here without consolekit. Consolekit isn't even installed.
You just need to make sure everything depending on Consolekit is rebuild after putting "-consolekit" in make.conf. Portage will take care of it automatically if you do "emerge -auDN world". Also, check /etc/portage/package.use; you might have explicitly enabled the USE flag there for some package and forgot about it.
I had installed just the core KDE and KDM, to try it a bit before install everything. I couldn't start KDM though till I intalled consolekit and rebuilt again the core KDE with the consolekit flag enabled.
I don't even have a /etc/portage/package.use file at all
