Default Startx fails

Hi everyone.
As you all know(hopefully), I have been having troubles lately with my kde environment. However, after I have followed the instructions given in /usr/ports/UPDATING to do an X update, I find myself to be completely baffled by the problems I am running into.

1) I can't startx. Startx fails "internally" the first few times and then subsequent attempts produces the following messages:

log a) internal failure
Code:
xauth:  creating new authority file /home/disappearedng/.serverauth.798
xauth: (argv):1:  bad display name "home.lan" in "list" command
xauth: (stdin):1:  bad display name "home.lan" in "add" command


X.Org X Server 1.4.0
Release Date: 5 September 2007
X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0
Build Operating System: FreeBSD 7.0-RELEASE i386 
Current Operating System: FreeBSD home.lan  7.0-RELEASE FreeBSD 7.0-RELEASE #5: Sun Jun 29 18:22:24 UTC 2008     root@.lan:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/miuky1 i386

	Before reporting problems, check http://wiki.x.org

Module Loader present

(II) Module "ddc" already built-in

waiting for X server to shut down FreeFontPath: FPE "/usr/local/lib/X11/fonts/misc/" refcount is 2, should be 1; fixing.


xauth: (argv):1:  bad display name "home.lan" in "remove" command
log b) subsequent failures

2) I am still having the same DCOPserver issue that I am currently facing. So I have decided to completely reinstall X and kde. (I am sick with all of this). As you all know, compiling X and kde will take a long time and as a student I don't get much time in front of my computer. However, my bash script experience are not strong enough so I would like to consult all of you whether the following shell script will work (I am following everything provided by KDE's website and /usr/ports/updating on X)
Code:
#!/bin/sh
portsnap fetch update
cd /usr/ports/x11/xorg
make deinstall
pkg_add -r xorg

pkg_delete -r qt\*
cd /usr/ports/x11/kde/
make install
Thx
