Perl modules, in FreeBSD ports, are usually prepended with a p5- and can 
be found by using make search:

E.g. cd to /usr/ports and type make search name=p5-Encode
Port:   p5-Encode-2.20
Path:   /usr/ports/converters/p5-Encode

pauls at utd59514# make search name=p5-HTML-Parser
Port:	p5-HTML-Parser-3.56
Path:	/usr/ports/www/p5-HTML-Parser
Info:	Perl5 module for parsing HTML documents
Maint:	perl at FreeBSD.org
B-deps:	p5-HTML-Tagset-3.10 p5-Test-Harness-2.64 p5-Test-Simple-0.70 
p5-URI-1.35 perl-5.8.8
R-deps:	p5-HTML-Tagset-3.10 p5-URI-1.35 perl-5.8.8
WWW:	http://search.cpan.org/dist/HTML-Parser/

LWP::Simple happens to be one of the exceptions to the normal naming 

Its location is www/p5-libwww.

It doesn't look like there's an Encode::Unicode port.  There's a bunch of 
Tk perl ports.
