Others have mentioned ways of enabling KDE4, but I just added the
following two lines to /etc/rc.conf:
  local_startup="/usr/local/etc/rc.d /usr/local/kde4/etc/rc.d"

Or you can omit the local_startup line if you do a:
  ln -s /usr/local/kde4/etc/rc.d/kde4 /usr/local/etc/rc.d/

The local_startup wouldn't be necessary if the startup script were put
in /usr/local/etc/rc.d where it should be.
