BSD equivalent of Linux's free(1)?

I am looking for something on BSD that will give me the same info as
free(1) in Linux. i.e. I would like to know the state of total/used/free
memory and swap.

I know there are a number of utilities in ports that will let me do
this, I am however looking for something in the base system (if such a
utility exists).

I also know that top(1) gives this info, and I could certainly use that,
I just wanted the nearest BSD sibling of free(1).)

Thank you!
