Install gdm (the Gnome _display_ manager) from the
x11/gdm port and add a line for it to /etc/ttys
(instead of the default xdm line you find there).

It should be something like

	ttyv8  "/usr/local/bin/gdm"  xterm  off secure

But check the documentaton of gdm, as well as the
FreeBSD Gnome project (from the main web page).
