This is because the locate db is built from a weekly cron job, which probably
hasn't run yet on your new install. You can run this manually if you want:
# sh /usr/src/etc/periodic/weekly/310.locate

You need to upgrade the dependencies, as the ones you have are out of date.
AFAIK pkg_add is supposed to take care of dependencies, but I almost never
use it, prefering to build from source using the ports collection:
# cd /usr/ports/x11-wm/xfce4 && make install clean
However, if you still want to use packages instead of source, I'm pretty sure
if you use the -r flag with pkg_add it will auto-fetch-and-install the
dependencies you need, as -r signifies to fetch the package remotely - i.e.,
pkg_add -r xfce4 (I just tried this with another package, and it installed
the dependencies for it).
