Default filesystem for OSX is HFS+ Journaled/case-insensitive. However, you can use hdiutil or DiskUtility to create a case-sensitive partition or filesystem image:
hdiutil create -size 1gb -fs 'Case-sensitive Journaled HFS+' /tmp/image.dmg
For kernel work, it might be worth using BootCamp to setup a free partition (intended for Windows, but reformat it for FreeBSD) and setup FreeBSD to boot natively.
