FreeBSD will defragment itself without any action from the user.
However, defragmentation requires some blank space, and (ideally) you
should not let any partition get more than 80% full. You can check on
that with "df -h":

Filesystem    Size   Used  Avail Capacity  Mounted on
/dev/ad0s2a   248M    68M   160M    30%    /
devfs         1.0K   1.0K     0B   100%    /dev
/dev/ad0s2g   2.4G   281M   1.9G    13%    /home
/dev/ad0s2e   248M   1.2M   227M     1%    /tmp
/dev/ad0s2f   8.7G   2.4G   5.6G    30%    /usr
/dev/ad0s2d   248M    17M   211M     8%    /var

The column labeled "Capacity" tells you the percentage of space being
consumed - over 80% would be bad. Note that the "devfs" uses 100% (on
FBSD 5.x, it doesn't exist on 4.x) - that's no problem, it's not a
partition and it will always be 100%.
