First, make sure that your TeXLive 2009 install is fully done, i.e.
that you installed full distribution from DVD or net. If you did not do
so, please let me know.
Then, your PATH -- as reported by env(1) -- must look like this:
The important thing is to put TeXLive executables before those
installed by ports. This also means that you can safely have both
TeXLive and teTeX on the same system, which is a necessity on many
FreeBSD desktop systems. Also, make sure that PATH is permanently
stored in /etc/csh.cshrc and/or ~/.cshrc (if you use (t)csh), like this:
setenv PATH /usr/local/texlive/2009/bin/i386-freebsd7:$PATH
Just to be sure, delete ~/.texlive2009 if you have it.
Then, check if TeXLive executables are visible:
% which tex
% tex -v
TeX 3.1415926 (TeX Live 2009)
kpathsea version 5.0.0

% ls -la `which xelatex`
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root wheel 5 Dec 12
18:24 /usr/local/texlive/2009/bin/i386-freebsd7/xelatex -> xetex
and if kpsewhich sees main configuration files:
% kpsewhich fmtutil.cnf
Then run a basic test like
% latex small2e
% dvips small2e.dvi
% pstopdf small2e.ps
and check small2e.pdf.
