For me, KDE's kdm does:
duane at DuanesTablet:~$ ldd /usr/bin/kdm
         linux-gate.so.1 =>  (0xffffe000)
         libX11.so.6 => /usr/lib/libX11.so.6 (0xb7edf000)
         libXau.so.6 => /usr/lib/libXau.so.6 (0xb7edc000)
         libXdmcp.so.6 => /usr/lib/libXdmcp.so.6 (0xb7ed6000)
         libpam.so.0 => /lib/libpam.so.0 (0xb7eaf000)
         libdbus-1.so.3 => /usr/lib/libdbus-1.so.3 (0xb7e77000)
         libc.so.6 => /lib/i686/cmov/libc.so.6 (0xb7d17000)
         libxcb-xlib.so.0 => /usr/lib/libxcb-xlib.so.0 (0xb7d15000)
         libxcb.so.1 => /usr/lib/libxcb.so.1 (0xb7cfd000)
         libdl.so.2 => /lib/i686/cmov/libdl.so.2 (0xb7cf8000)
         /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0xb7fd0000)
duane at DuanesTablet:~$ sudo dpkg -l kdm

I had other problems with programs in xorg as well.
