You should be able to get some cpu info with ports/sysutils/x86info.
Dunno about memory (its physical configuration, that is). USB devices
can be listed with "usbdevs", pci ones with "pciconf", ATA devices
with "atacontrol", SCSI ones with "camcontrol", XFree prints lots of
info on your graphics card into /var/run/XFree86.0.log. Also, some of
the values detected at boot end up as sysctls (usually under "hw").

I know of no simple way to get complete hardware information on a
silver platter, though.  Nor do I really care :-)
