Well, it depends on what you're doing in terms of user requirements  
and systems (ie, are the FreeBSD boxes fileservers, clients, or  
both?), but the stuff which comes with FreeBSD is documented in  
acl(3), getfacl, setfacl, etc.  Other choices might involve something  
like the Andrew File System / Transarc DFS stuff, or Windows Active  
Directory and Samba/CIFS on the FreeBSD boxes....
