This of course does nothing for the next boot.

I assume you are running one of the desktop distributions. Otherwise you have to 
make a change to start an X server. We installed PCBSD just to see how they did 
things. The version we installed starts kdm from /etc/ttys. The other way would 
be to start it from /usr/local/etc/rc.d/.

Try:  egrep -lr "[xk]dm" .

with pwd = /etc/ and /usr/local/etc/rc.d/
