Very interesting that nearly nobody seems to run startx on the
hd-install again. :)

mika at grml ~ % grep startx /etc/zsh/zshrc
    isgrmlcd  && alias startx='echo -e "Please use the script \"grml-x\" for \
    starting the X Window System.\n If you want to use startx anyway please  \
    call \"/usr/bin/startx\"."; return -1'

Maybe I'll check for existence of xorg.conf instead of isgrmlcd() as
XFree86 shouldn't be present anymore. (I tried to avoid a check for
xorg.conf as in the beginnings of grml XFree86's XF86Config-4 was
present as well.)

And yes, this check and alias is definitely necessary.
