tdm login screen - gentdmconf, need to check existence of /etc/X11/Xsession before sourcing

Tim, Darrell,

  One problem with gentdmconf is that arch does not have an /etc/X11/Xsession
file. So when gentdeconf creates the Xsession file with an include for
/etc/X11/Xsession, the login fails. What needs to be changed is a simple check
to make sure the file exists before sourcing it. i.e.:

[[ -r /etc/X11/Xsession ]] && . /etc/X11/Xsession
