Well, as maintainer of sphinxsearch, I'm sorry about that.  I did have a
quick look at building libsphinxclient from both the 0.9.9 and 1.10-beta
sources.  You're right.  It's pretty broken on FreeBSD.

Patches welcome!  I'll be happy to add libsphinxclient support somehow
-- probably as a separate port, but right now $REALLIFE is keeping me
too busy to devote much time to doing ports stuff.

Looks like there's been some significant fixes gone into the development
version -- the OP might like to try grabbing the latest code from SVN
( and trying that.
