Been having this message too, but since it's a non-critical issue I
haven't looked at it until now.
The message comes from running "genkdmconf" to update your KDM
configuration. The latest KDE has installed
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/genkdmconf.sh which runs the "real" genkdmconf in
update mode every time you boot. I'm not exactly sure why this is
necessary, since the files really only need to be updated if/when you've
changed your configuration or upgraded KDE. If the messages bother you,
move (or remove) genkdmconf.sh from rc.d. Personally, since I now know
the messages' origin I'll just ignore them.
