Easiest way I can think of is to run knoppix and take the Xfree config file 
and copy it to freebsd.  Knoppix has some great hardware autodetection.  It 
has perfectly configured x on every computer I've tried it on.
besides it boots to a perfect working kde setup.  I'd love to see more of the 
tools knoppix uses ported to freebsd.  Too bad I haven't the skills myself.

and a mini iso is available here:

have fun
