Try 'which startkde' and if a location is printed on screen then KDE
is probably installed.  Just replace what's in your .xinitrc with
'exec startkde' and then run startx.

If KDE isn't installed you can download and install the package with
'pkg_add -r kde' or by running /stand/sysinstall then navigate to the
packages menu (you need to be root for the install of course)...
