Same as any other *nix operating system. Basically just follow the
installation instructions with the program. Common basic ones are...

untar it
    tar -zxf file.tar.gz
cd into the extracted dir
    cd file/
run the configure script if there is one.
and compile it with make or if necessary gmake

But, if a program is in the ports tree you are better off using that unless
you have specific reason not to.
