please file a proper bug report against the package.  You should still be able
to get an X server through vncserver.  Normally gdm/kdm are used with XDMCP to
provide remote desktops, so the combination with vnc seems strange to me.
If that isn't possible anymore, I'd say it's a bug.  If you just want a
graphical environment, use vncserver.  (Also vncviewer's -via option is pretty
helpful to connect via SSH.)

Kind regards,
