I don't know of one.   But, I am not really familiar with the HP-9000
so someone could well be doing something with it I do not know.   It
appears that they offer Linux on it as well as HPUX, so it would probably
be possible to create a FreeBSD that would run on it.    It kind of looks 
like the 9000 series might be a follow-on product to the Convex Systems
that HP bought a few years ago to be their High Performance offerings
and those systems ran a version of UNIX that was more BSD based.

You might have some exciting times doing the port for it...
