Well, you'ld have to start it as a daemon using some sort of rc.d file.
There doesn't seem to be one supplied with the x11/xdm port, so I guess
you'll have to write your own. Shouldn't be too difficult -- just copy
and mutate some other relatively simple daemon's rc script.
I think you'll need to put in some work on the Xdm config files, as it
defaults to trying to manage a local display. Remember too that running
X in plaintext over a network is roughly on a par, security wise, as
running such deprecated services as rsh or rlogin.
