Even if /dev/dsp does not appear when you list the contents of /dev, under FBSD 5.X it should still magically appear when something tries to access it, if I've understood correctly. That is how my 5.1-machines behave anyway. With this in mind, something is apparently fishy in your sound system - without being wizardly enough to say what is up, I would not bet on it working out even if you reconfigure the device. If you still want to try, though, you can point the KDE sound system (aRts) to a specific device by enabling the "Use custom sound device" setting in the KDE control center. It can be found under the "Sound I/O" tab in Sound & Multimedia -> Sound System.
