The most recent vnc server configuration I've done has been on opensolaris. That required the following step, translated to FreeBSD
echo 'vnc\t5900/tcp\t\t#VNC server' >>/etc/services
echo 'vnc stream tcp nowait nobody /usr/local/bin/Xvnc' >> /etc/inetd.conf
/etc/rc.d/inetd restart
That should prepare the system to use vnc, test with vncviewer on either 'localhost' or 'localhost:0' or 'localhost:1' (I don't recall which). Then configuring /etc/X11/gdm/custom.conf. I think on FreeBSD with kdm, you need to enable XDMCP in '/usr/local/share/config/kdm/Xaccess', but I can't tell what needs to be changed or added.

Sorry if this is what you have already done. I don't believe any other files need to be configured, just restart inetd and restart kdm.
