These package which were not installed, are mostly direct Recommends
of the task-desktop package. So it seems that Recommends were either not
being installed, despite tasksel running apt-get -o APT::Install-Recommends=true
or some dependency issue prevented installing those Recommends.

Also, tasksel should default to selecting the xfce task on kfreebsd.
This can be tested in an already installed system by running:
sudo tasksel -t --new-install

Hopefully that's enough to let someone who has the bandwidth to look at what's
causing this problem on kfreebsd.
