Assuming you haven't somehow messed up your installation of KDE (in which
case you might like to ask on kde at freebsd.org), it might be an XDG
menu-related problem. Try setting the following environment variables
before starting KDE (I do it in ~/.xinitrc and start KDE with 'startx'):
  export XDG_DATA_DIRS=$KDEDIR/share:/usr/local/share:/usr/share
    export XDG_CONFIG_DIRS=$KDEDIR/etc/xdg
