KDE not starting. Cannot start kdeinit

I just installed FreeBSD (using a CD burned from the
5.3-RELEASE-i386-miniinst.iso image) on a NEC machine with a Celeron D335. I
have xorg 6.8.2 (upgraded via portupgrade) and KDE 3.3.0 (installed via
Internet as binaries, with pkg_add, after upgrading xorg).
I then created an .xinitrc file by copying from /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xinit
into my home directory and adding exec startkde at the beginning of the
file, after the first few lines.
When I type startx, xorg starts OK, but I then get "Could not start kdeinit.
Check your installation".
Kdeinit is in /usr/local/bin and the kdelibs package is installed and
recognised by pkg_info.
Any idea what went wrong ?
