I installed SLiM to use as a display manager. It failed to work properly until dbus was installed and running. 

In the slim log file I saw the following error:

slim: void Ck::Session::open_session(const string&, __uid_t): Unable to open session: Failed to connect to socket /var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket: No such file or directory

Once dbus is installed and running, slim works as expected.

Please consider updating slim to require dbus.
> pkgin in slim
> cp /usr/pkg/share/examples/rc.d/slim /etc/rc.d/slim
> echo "slim=YES" >> /etc/rc.conf

configure ~/.xinitrc to taste

> service slim start


.xinitrc isn't executed leaving an empty X root screen.
