It doesn't?

    % uname -a 
    FreeBSD 4.9-STABLE FreeBSD 4.9-STABLE #56: Thu Feb 19 23:35:17 GMT 2004     root at  i386
    % grep -i acpi /var/run/dmesg.boot 
    acpi0: <ASUS   A7V266  > on motherboard
    acpi0: power button is handled as a fixed feature programming model.
    Timecounter "ACPI-fast"  frequency 3579545 Hz
    acpi_timer0: <24-bit timer at 3.579545MHz> port 0xe408-0xe40b on acpi0
    acpi_cpu0: <CPU> on acpi0
    acpi_button0: <Power Button> on acpi0
    acpi_cpu: throttling enabled, 16 steps (100% to 6.2%), currently 100.0%

Admittedly this isn't the same level of support as occurs in 5.x, but
it is there.  See the documentation in /usr/src/sys/i386/conf/LINT for
'device acpica' for more details.
