I use xdm with xorg and i experienced something similar.
By default, /usr/pkg/etc/xorg/xdm/Xservers is empty.
I had to add the following line to this file to make it working:
:0 local /usr/pkg/xorg/bin/X vt05 -nolisten tcp
(from the xdm config shipped with xfree86)
Maybe that should be configured by default.
