startx should invoke xinit which (unless you have a ~/.xinitrc) should
run /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc. In my version of that file there is:


and later:

if [ -f "$usermodmap" ]; then
    xmodmap "$usermodmap"

Not sure why that does not work for you. You can simmply copy it over
to .xinitrc and modify it as you like (this is also where you would replace
twm with another window manager).

Another option is to use the graphical login (e.g. via setting xdm=YES
in /etc/rc.conf) and then using .xsession as the startup script.
