Pain finding packages

I am very new to FreeBSD with several years of Linux experience. After installed FreeSDB for the first time, I wanted to install some packages. For example, samba.
I found that
pkg_add -r samba
fails. I need to know specifically the samba version to install it.
To install, I needed do this:
pkg_add -r samba3
This is difficult. Do I need to look up every package in advance on your website to understand what version I need to install?
Isn't there a way to specify "Install the latest version of some package that is appropriate to the version of my installed FreeBSD"?
