OpenBSD is not FreeBSD, nor or is it Arch Linux.

Blindly copying commands you find without understanding what they mean is a very bad idea..

OpenBSD's rc(8) is not compatible with FreeBSD's, this is very obvious to anyone would would take the time to look at it.. as for "pacman", that is obviously a package manager for Linux.

Don't follow random outdated tutorials you find on someones blog either.

To start "gnome" you can execute the proper program, gnome-session. You can start it from your ~/.xinitrc or ~/.xsession file.

If you want X to start at boot, you need a "display manager", several exist in the ports tree.. but xdm is in base.
