The FreeBSD equivalent is pkg(8) -- run:

   pkg bootstrap

which will use the shim in /usr/sbin/pkg to pull down the real pkg(8)
package and install it.

Then you can run eg:

   pkg info

to list your installed packages.  See the pkg-info(8) man page for more
details.  pkg(8) also has 'install', 'update', 'delete' and a bunch of
other verbs for doing various package management operations.
