Lars S|dergren at pointed me to the right
direction. Here is what I did:
In /usr/dt/config/C/Xresources.d, I created a file called
Xresources.fvwm from Xresources.ow. It looks like the following:
Dtlogin*altDtsIncrement: True
Dtlogin*altDtName: FVWM Desktop
Dtlogin*altDtKey: /usr/bin/X11/fvwm
Dtlogin*altDtStart: /usr/lib/X11/xdm/Xsession
Dtlogin*altDtLogo: Dtlogo
Then at the login time, I was able to start FVWM by choosing FVWM
Desktop within the session menu.
