A quick google indicates there are at least 2 sftp servers with this

Proftpd with mod_sftp needs the proftp-devel port so I'm guessing its
still in testing but at least its in ports.
No idea about the mysecureshell program, its not in ports.

I havent actually tried with of these so no idea how well they work,
good luck.
