Everything you could want to know about CARP and FreeBSD:

On my 8.1 box -

fbsdsroute0# sysctl net.inet.carp.allow
sysctl: unknown oid 'net.inet.carp.allow'

So I can't say for certain but I would hazard the guess that it is not
included in the GENERIC kernel.

Alas, there is documentation for rebuilding your kernel, too:
