Don't know exactly, as I am quite new to FreeBSD; but I can tell you what I 
did.

After the installation of X11, I created a file in my home directory 
called .xinitrc in that file I have the single line exec startkde.

I log into my account, and when I want Xwindows I simply 
execute /usr/X11R6/bin/startx.

Here is what my .xinitrc file looks like:
#/usr/X11R6/bin/startxfce4
#exec gnome-session
#/usr/X11R6/bin/afterstep
exec startkde

I can edit it and use another window manager if I want... I have used all the 
ones listed.
 
Hope some of this helps.
 
Bob
