Do you have physical access to the FreeBSD system? If so look at 
.xsession-errors in your home dir. In /var/log you will have Xorg.0.log and some 
other simiarly name files. It seemed like getting xfce started was at least part 
of the problem. If not, sorry for the noise.

I use xdm with my .xsession as follows:

artemis:~> cat .xsession
#!/bin/sh
/usr/bin/ssh-agent /usr/local/bin/startxfce4

startxfce4 from the console login also works. I do not have any other user 
defined files.
