I'm sorry to be not clear in hasteness of day!
I think port is not required, they have good enough which gracefully
understand what is FreeBSD and could start IDE just fine.
What I meant, was that FreeBSD as a project could benefit from applying for
their OpenSource Licensing program, so any commiter/developer could try and
probably work efficiently in this IDE.
Because I'm not committer nor some kind of mentor of project, I can only
point someone to there.

If you go on their site (google intellij), part of "IntelliJ IDEA" > "Buy &

you could learn more on conditions for applying.

So, to summarize this all again: If there are some commiter/responsible
person who can apply - then FreeBSD devs could gain one more IDE to develop
some parts of FreeBSD.
