This seems to be the problem, I was not offered Xfree by tasksel so the
fault must have occurred before that. I've since seen a sample tasksel
menu where Xfree was the very top item, above desktop, but my top item
was desktop. I had expected 'X' to be installed as a result of choosing
desktop since you cannot, to the best of my knowledge, run a desktop
without some form of 'X'.
