The OP is referring to this:

Certainly, FreeBSD 4.2 is *way* too old to work.  The ports doesn't
support anything much before 9.3-RELEASE nowadays -- I'd always choose
the latest available stable release for any new project.

Neither FreeBSD itself, nor any of the software bundled with the base
system, apparently supports NAT64 at the moment.  (At least, I couldn't
find anything saying it does, and plenty saying it doesn't).  There's
some mention of pfsense supporting NAT64 but I haven't confirmed that.
(pfsense is a firewall system based on FreeBSD.)

Tayga is add-on software separate to the OS, which you should simply be
able to install with pkg(8) on a recent (and supported) version of FreeBSD.
