No, it's the FreeBSD kernel sources...

There ain't no FreeBSD kernel source package, or kernel source
port (or at least not that I'm aware of, and I wouldn't expect
there to be).

You will need to install the source files from the
appropriate FreeBSD installation media and / or from the 'net.
You can, for instance, use cvsup(1) to pull the FreeBSD kernel
sources for any particular revision (or indeed date / time)

Please see
for more information on using cvsup to update / obtain FreeBSD
kernel sources, but do also be aware that you're probably
better off installing the sources from the installation media
first, then updating them (if you feel this is necessary for
your particular version of FreeBSD) to avoid having to download
the whole lot.

I have probably explained this a little too quickly, so please
feel free to ask if you'd like clarification.
