it is a Software configuration management (SCM) or version control
system, like CVS or subversion.
it is more powerful than CVS (makes some tasks easier to do),
and so some projects are done on the perforce tree and then
eventually merged into the fbsd CVS tree.
Perforce is commercial but is free to use for some kinds
of usages like fbsd, check their site for details.
