This has nothing to do with USE flags I think.
Open Systemsettings -> Standard Components, there's an entry for the
window manager. I can chose between KDE default (KWin), and another
window manager. The dropdown list has Metacity (GNOME) and Openbox,
although I have more window managers installed, including awesome, which
show up in KDM. Maybe this link helps:
I find metacity.desktop and openbox.desktop
in /usr/share/apps/ksmserver/windowmanagers/, so I guess you have to find
awesome.desktop, and put it there. Or create such a file yourself like
suggestend in the link above.
