cd /dev && MAKEDEV snd0 should create the device node, however, there is 
virtually no support for MIDI in FreeBSD at the moment, so getting KMid to 
actually play anything is still rather difficult if not plain impossible. You 
can play *.mid files with the audio/timidity port, which is a (commandline) 
GM compatible software synth.
