I don't have any experience with EMC-SANs, but...

...a card with QLogic-Chipset should work (HP FC1243 with QLogic 2422 chip
for example (PCI-X)). Please have a look at isp(4) for more information.
There seem to be more possible cards that are handled by mpt(4), but I
have never seen one of those.
You probably also want to have a look at gmultipath(8).
disclaimer: I don't run FreeBSD in our SAN at this time, so I can't
really say anything about production use of FreeBSD in FC-ЅANs.
