I beg your pardon. I completely misunderstood the whole point of the
problem. Sorry, I was just a little excited over getting my own setup
going just recently :)
I don't know if it will help, but it looks to me like the memory
restrictions in your login.conf are giving problems with startx.
Try turning on the xdm in /etc/ttys. If it's run as root, you can
then log into X with the memory already allocated (by root).
Just a guess, since I've not gotten to the point of needing MAC yet,
but I hope it helps.
