I have KDM running on 4.5-STABLE, using KDE-2.2 from ports. Unfortunately,
I can't remember doing anything unusual to get it to work.

I can contribute the fact that "Unknown command line option 'ttyv8'"
message is a red herring - you always get this on the console when running
KDM from /etc/ttys, even when KDM is working properly (init passes the
terminal name to the getty process that it spawns, kdm doesn't know what
this is, and comments on the fact - it carries on running though).
