Try: 

  cd /usr/ports/x11-wm/evilwm && make install clean

Can't beat a window manager with a  binary size of 29k and a resident
memory footprint under 2MB.  No window decorations, leaving lots of room
for xterms.  Launch everything via script or shell alias.  Very keyboard
driven.

If only I could find a terminal program that was smaller than "rxvt" I'd be
happy.

I feel your pain on the bloated software phenomenom.  That's the pain of
progress, I suppose.
