Don't know about socks4, but:

    :/usr/ports:% make search name=socks
    Port:   p5-SOCKS-0.03
    Path:   /usr/ports/net/p5-Socks
    Info:   Perl5 module to communicate with socks v4 and v5 servers
    Maint:  nakai at
    Index:  net
    Port:   socks5-1.0.11_2
    Path:   /usr/ports/net/socks5
    Info:   SOCKS v5 application layer gateway and clients
    Maint:  ports at
    Index:  net security

Is socks5 any good to you?  Oh, this is one of those annoying ports
where you have to do manual click-on-buttons type of things to
download the source (hence no binary packages), but otherwise it
should be a fairly normal port installation.  For directions, once
you've installed the port, start with the
/usr/local/share/examples/socks5/README file.
