That message is _not_ in relation to the problems you're

Depending on how you setup X (full autodetecion, no config
file, HAL and DBOS -or- xorg.conf file with proper settings),
you should make sure everything is in place.

See chapter 6.4 of the FreeBSD Handbook:

The (missing) presence of the X authority file has
nothing to do with keyboard or mouse problems.
