Recent BSDs (all of them, FreeBSD 5.n/6.n included) have PF in the base system.
'overload' rules are fairly easy to set up, eg
table <bruteforce> persist
#Then somewhere fairly early in your rule set you set up to block from the bruteforcers
block quick from <bruteforce>
#And finally, your pass rule.
pass inet proto tcp from any to $localnet port $tcp_services \
flags S/SA keep state \
(max-src-conn 100, max-src-conn-rate 15/5, \
overload <bruteforce> flush global)
