DHCP Server

Try /usr/ports/net/isc-dhcp3/

Initial configuration can be a bit confusing.  Here's a working config from
my box at home:

  option domain-name-servers;
  default-lease-time 86400;
  max-lease-time 864000;
  ddns-update-style none;
  log-facility local7;

  subnet netmask {
    option routers;

Assuming you have two nics in the box, you'll want to specify the interface
that you want dhcpd to listen on (otherwise, it will gripe about not having
a configuration for the other nic).
