I do not use kde.  Anyway, what else to tell you as I too had no
problems whilst not following the official directions.

I de installed X 6.9.x & all the dependent software; installed X 7.x;
rebuild+reinstalled the needed software.  Somewhere in there set
/usr/X11R6 symbolic link to $LOCALBASE, and set $X11BASE same as
$LOCALBASE in /etc/make.conf.
