Thank you very much, Oviler, and sorry for your time!
But I`ve already figured out my problem.
I just added '/usr/local/bin/startxfce4' to .xsession
and then I made link from .xsession to .xinitrc (to act on your advice)
All works fine: I see icons and menu.
Really sorry for your time.

I still have one last problem (opera crashes system in xfce), but I think
I'll deal with it myself. Maybe it's again my inaccuracy or carelessness.

I have porridge in my head from all this things=)
Various *kit and u* makes me cry)
And now I don`t know how to properly configure xfce on freebsd.
