See the FreeBSD GNOME FAQ at http://www.freebsd.org/gnome/docs/faq2.html.
There is a question specifically geared to upgrading from GNOME Lite to
the full GNOME Desktop.

Yes. The same FAQ talks about installing GNOME from packages from our

GNOME and GNOME Lite certainly support Brazilian Portuguese. Simply set
your LANG environment variable to pt_BR.ISO8859-1, and start GNOME, and
every app that has a Brazilian Portuguese translation will display it.
I don't use KDE, but as I recall KDE is a bit different. You have to
install the language bindings for your locale. Just install
portuguese/kde3-i18n-pt_BR, and you should be set there (provided your
LANG is correctly defined as mentioned above).
