I'm trying to follow the canonical Xorg 7.4 approach, which appears to 
use hald/dbus.  The solution is to write a simple script that executes 
/usr/local/kde4/bin/kdm in /usr/local/etc/rc.d; this starts KDE4 after 
hald/dbus have started and the keyboard and mouse work.

I had no problems with the screensaver with KDE4.1/Xorg 7.4/FreeBSD 
7.1-STABLE on a dual Xeon (SM P6DC6+) with a Radeon X800 AIW AGP card; 
currently both monitors are cloning.  This machine has also been upgraded 
to KDE4.2.

(I've been tracking the x11 at freebsd.org mailing list for the changes
required by Xorg 7.4)
