I suspect its looking for xterm in your /compat/linux emulation
environment. I don't know if there's a linux-xterm port available (I
didn't see one), but you *might* be able to get away with hardlinking or
copying /usr/X11R6/bin/xterm to /compat/linux/usr/X11R6/bin/xterm
(assuming you have linux-XFree86-libs or linux-xorg-libs installed).

Perhaps someone better versed in X11 and Linux emulation can answer to this.
