It will run. Just IDEA is not included in binary FreeBSD distribution.
In order to use It You must include "MAKE_IDEA= YES" line in /etc/make.conf
and rebuild world.
# The following controls building optional IDEA code in libcrypto and
# certain ports. Patents are involved - you must not use this unless
# you either have a license or fall within patent 'fair use'
# *** It is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to determine if you can use this! ***
# IDEA is patented in the USA and many European countries - thought to
# be OK to use for any non-commercial use. This is optional.
#MAKE_IDEA= YES # IDEA (128 bit symmetric encryption)
