Usually you add support either by compiling it into the kernel or
by loading the modules.
If you use GENERIC the line 'snd_hda_load="YES"' in
/boot/loader.conf should load the module.
'kldload snd_hda' at a prompt works too.

In console? Do you mean without running Xorg?

Do you start it from a menu? What is the start command for that
menu item? You could try
to change it to include ktrace, something like 'ktrace vlc'.
If you'd like a large ktrace dump file, you could try a
complete ktrace of xfce. Try 'ktrace -i startx'.
Remember this will generate a LARGE dump file. 'ktrace -C' turns
all ongoing tracing off.

I don't know how xfce does this kind of things. Maybe you need to
change something in its sound
settings or add a startup option. Does sound work at all within
xfce, or is it only vlc that fails? Did
you compile xfce yourself or did you use packages?
Good luck :-)
