As you mmention, you have ClamAV 0.83. If it is installed from FreeBSD 
ports/packages, this old version didn't have separate startup script for 
freshclam, but the freshclam binary itself should still exist (use 
'which freshclam' to find it).

That being said, you really should update to newer version, 0.83 is 
quite old.

Just use ports (to upgrade ClamAV). Freshclam is part of ClamAV.
