startx command not found :(, no bash
ran
# pkg_add -r bash
# pkg_add -r xfce4

did not succeed, now ran to ports
# cd /usr/ports/x11-wm/xfce4
# make install clean

and am stuck here.  Hopefully this gets me back on my feet.
Otherwise, it has been a big exercise :) and definitely I will learn
from it.

Regards,

Antonio
