Whenever I try to start KDE4, I get this output:

# /usr/local/kde4/etc/rc.d/kdm4 start
Startink kdm4.

/usr/local/kde4/share/config/kdm/kdmrc (config version 2.4)

The same thing happens when I try to run Gnome or Xfce.  It all started  
when I accidentally deleted graphics/jpeg and graphics/png.  I tried  
reinstalling them, but it didn't work.  I have done portupgrade -a three  
times, but none of them helped.  How can I fix this issue without having  
to reinstall?
