sudo is an _excellent_ tool for giving non-root users limited
privileges.  Just because it's not in the FreeBSD base don't hold
anything against it.  I use it on my FreeBSD boxes so I can install
ports and update the machines without needing root.  On my OpenBSD box
(where sudo is part of the base) I set root's shell back to csh, not
tcsh like FreeBSD uses, to make logging in as root so uncomfortable that
it forces me to write a sudo permission for repetitive tasks. :)
