Yes.  As luck would have it I wrote a guide to installing it on FreeBSD

Whilst pwcheck is now deprecated and it still works, it should still
help you out.

Remember to install the exim documentation as well - whilst quite terse,
the documentation is very comprehensive.  As the other poster mentions
check for existing configurations as well and also check the exim-users
list for some ideas - try searching here:
