If your looking for a quick gui setup, try this:
first go to root, do this by typing:
enter your root password.
pkg_add -r gnome2
This will install ad start the gnome graphical user interface, to
automaticly start it when FreeBSD starts, type(as root)
Scroll down a few lines and you'll see this line:
ttyv9 "/usr/X11R6/bin/xdm -nodaemon" xterm off secur
replace xdm with gdm and replace off with on.
