I don't use kdm myself so the following is just a possibility.

I can't find a single reference to tty8 in the handbook.
The section to follow seems to be 126.96.36.199 which then refers to section 5.6.2
which implies that you should have a line in etc/ttys saying:
ttyv8 "/usr/local/bin/kdm -nodaemon" xterm off secure

Perhaps it _was_ just a typo then (I know how frustrating that can be).
