I suspect that fuse.ko is loaded by one of the scripts under /etc/rc.d
since it seems to be installed under $PREFIX/modules where PREFIX is
normally /usr/local. Until that happens you can't use mount_fusefs.

Well, there are ways to force dependencies in the rc.d scripts, but I
don't know the setup well enough to be helpful. I have no idea which
script handles modules installed by ports and when it is invoked.
You could try moving fuse.ko to /boot/modules and modify loader.conf
to load fuse.ko at boot time.
