You may want to check the www/varnish port. From the ports description:
This is the Varnish high-performance HTTP accelerator.
Documentation and additional information about Varnish is available on
Technical questions about Varnish and this release should be addressed
to <varnish-dev at projects.linpro.no>.
Questions about commercial support and services related to Varnish
should be addressed to <varnish at linpro.no>.
And from wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Varnish_cache
I've never used it myself, but looks interesting since it's been
created by Poul-Henning Kamp which is a major FreeBSD developer.
