rpm is in the FreeBSD ports under archivers/rpm.  IIRC, rpms are binary only, aren't they?  I guess if you loaded the Linux compatibility, and installed the rpm port, you could use it to install things to run in compat mode.  Unless you have need for Linux compatibility, you should use the ports or packages to install stuff as BSD native binaries.
