Today's X configures automatically. Otherwise, refer to the
handbook's section about configuring X.

For selecting a default desktop, refer to KDE and Gnome on FreeBSD
which you'll find in the handbook, too. Of course you can use
XFCE, Fluxbox, FVWM, WindowMaker, Metacity, Enlightenment or any
other DE / WM you can think of.
