Also make sure you have an Xserver that works.
This is how I do it:
X -configure  follow directions moving to /etc/X11/XF86Config
install kde3 the metaport:
cd /usr/ports/x11/kde3 && make install
create file .xinitrc with startkde in it
startx with whatever options you want to startx with
I use:
startx -- -depth 24

works for me.
