extra functionality, like MySQL or PgSQL database backends, DKIM and SPF
checks, and access to distributed spam checksum databases like Pyzor and

If the default setup doesn't suit you needs you can manage by just
adding the missing modules and tweaking the configuration.  Or install
the spamassassin pkg from ports with your own choice of options to get
everything pulled in automatically.  If you the manual route, don't need
to install those modules from CPAN -- they're all available in ports.
