Yes, it can be done.  It is done  by a couple of the ports, and as such
there is a pre-ported way of doing it.

/usr/ports/devel/linux_devtools and linux_devtools-7 (depending which
version of the linux_base you have).

After that its mostly automatic.  You may need to do things like get
kernel-source, or other bits depending on what you are doing.
