Assuming your running FreeBSD 4.8:

Use the ports system:
     su
     cd /usr/ports/x11/XFree86-4/
     make install clean

Or use pkg_add:
    su
    pkg_add 
ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/packages/All/XFree86-4.3.0,1.tgz

(pkg_add and the ftp address should be on the same line.)

Good reference:

Best of luck,
