I installed xorg and it boots correctly. I installed gnome3 from the ports tree and it says that gdm is automatically installed with it. I have
Code:
gdm_enable="YES"
in rc.conf.
When I try to start
Code:
service gdm onestart
it says
Code:
gdm does not exist in /etc/rc.d or the local startup directories or is not executable.
Did I do something wrong?

There could be a several problems.
Thread 35993
Gnome also requires 3D acceleration, while xorg will run without it.
Do the start up scripts exist? They may be in /usr/local/etc/rc.d
Edit: exit -> exist
