Default OpenBSD 5.4 on yeeloong : input method problem

Hi, I'm new in this forum.
I hope this is the right place
I have installed OpenBSD 5.4-release on my yeeloong machine, I can't to use SCIM for input chinese characters.
Packages installed: scim, scum-pinyin, zh-wqy-zenhei-ttf (from the packages repository, not from ports)
my related .xinitric config
export LC_CTYPE=en_US.UTF-8
export GTK_IM_MODULE="scim"
export QT_IM_MODULE="scim"
export XMODIFIERS="@im=SCIM"
/usr/local/bin/scim -d
I only use windows manager, cwm, and dwm
X start without problem but when I click Ctrl-Space SCIM don't show the input windows.
If in a terminal I do
$ scim -d 
Smart Common Input Method 1.4.9

Launching a SCIM daemon with Socket FrontEnd…

GTK Panel of SCIM 1.4.9

Starting SCIM as daemon
SCIM has been successfully launched.
So I don't understand where is my mistake.
Everything look ok… but scim input window don't appear and I can't input chinese characters.
In the forum I've not found thread about this arguments. I've posted the same problem in a chinese *BSD forum but the indication is config properly the .xinitric like above, like I have done, so I still have this problem unresolved.
The only related thing, I think, is: when I run scum-setup it run properly but show my a Keyboard Layout: Unknow. If I set the kbd layout to English (US) I need to restart scim in order the configuration take effect, but when restart scim don't recognize the kbd again.
Any suggestion is very appreciate
I apologize for my bad english
