You can find it in the ports collection (sysutils/screen).
For example: $ screen $ cd /usr/src; sudo make buildworld (now press CTRL+A D) On the other machine, ssh into the desktop $ screen -r (press CTRL+A D if you've seen enough) Also, this will protect the running job from accidental (or purposefully) closure of the terminal.
