This entry seems to be used when you run startx from the console,
that's why you can launch fluxbox when you run startx. Of course the
question is what did you emerge recently and which configuration files
did that change. If you use genlop to check your emerge history (or
look in /var/log/emerge.log) that may give some pointers.

None of the above are 'wrong' as such. They are sourced by startx.
The question then is what is gdm parsing to find which sessions to
launch. Display Managers usually check what you have in:
and offer these as a session option to login. I think that gdm is
probably looking in /usr/share/xsessions/* where it expects to find
fluxbox.desktop and will offer this as a login session option (not
sure because I do not have gdm to check).
Display Manager may also look to see if the environment variable
XSESSION is set. Therefore you can try setting this in
/etc/env.d/90xsession like this, just in case it is sourced:
PS. You may need to reboot for good measure.
