Lumina is a lightweight desktop environment, free of dbus and *kit, designed to have as few system dependencies and requirements as possible.
emerge --ask x11-wm/lumina
A configuration file is installed in /etc/luminaDesktop.conf. Lumina also has a bunch of own configuration tools.
Lumina provides its own replacement for startx to be started from console.
