Strange X problem

I just got done setting up 6.1 RELEASE on my laptop.  Cvsup'd all the 
ports, updated xorg, etc. and installed kde.  For some odd reason, I can't 
get X to start up from boot.

On my workstation, I have this in /etc/ttys:
ttyv8   "/usr/local/bin/kdm -nodaemon"  xterm   on secure

When I installed kde on the laptop, it edited /etc/ttys and added the 
*exact* same information.  Yet, X will not start unless I login as root and 
type kdm at the commandline.

What did I miss?
