Dunno if it quite covers what you want, but there is a package called
SNFS, details here http://www.math.ualberta.ca/imaging/snfs/.

The page says that it is known to work with FreeBSD.

If your servers and clients are all running the BSD implementation of
NFS, they can run over TCP and therefore can be tunnelled over SSH 
without the aid of any third party extensions or apps.
