I have installed the latest version of XFree86 (3.3), and I can use
startx and xinit.
When I try to use xdm, the login screen come up fine, but after
enetering the login and
password, the screen goes blank for a moment then comes back to the
login screen.

I an also having trouble installing ports for X.  When doing make, it
stops with an error
that it can't find the file xpm.h. I tried to install the graphic/xpm
port and the same error
occurred.  Did I miss something i the initial FreeBSD installation?

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
