Should be no problem.
The Standard FreeBSD copyright says you can do what you want.
Just include the FreeBSD copyright.
Now, the ports are separate from FreeBSD as far as copyrights go.
They are produced by other people and organizations who set their
own copyright rules. Mostly they are the same as FreeBSD, but
some have their own limitations or requirements. So, if you are
including a port in your product, you should also check the copyright
for the port.
