Use -name.  If the stars are used, they have to be protected from shell 
expansion:  find /usr/ports -name "*freetype*"

But usually ports can be found quickly with whereis:
   % whereis freetype
   freetype: /usr/ports/print/freetype

If you don't know the exact name used, there are search options like 
Polytropon showed, or the website can be handy.
