tangoGPS compiled and works just fine in FreeBSD, just the usual way:

make install

it needs a gps daemon which is in the ports, and you need some GPS
device RS232 or USB based and the web pages of gpsd have a long list
of compatibel devices, for sure not all tested with FreeBSD; will see if
I could check some out in the near future;
