Congratulations.  You've got the X server running, which is most of
the battle.

What you need to do now is install a window manager or a desktop
environment, which will give you all of the icons and menus and stuff
you expect.  See http://www.xwinman.org/ for a site that reviews most
of the available ones: pretty much all of them should be available
from ports -- just install the one you want, and follow the
instructions in the documentation for getting it to start up
automatically when you start up an X session.
