synaptic is included in the desktop task. Certian installation methods
(notably, using the full-size CD and no additional mirror) won't include
synaptic since it doesn't fit on the CD. Most other installation methods
(DVDs or anything involving a mirror) will include synaptic.

There are (the xfce desktop task is not included in mainline yet). The
installation manual explains how to manually force the installer to use
a different desktop than the standard gnome desktop. (Basically, you
boot with tasksel/first=kde-desktop)
