    It's not that difficult ;)

    cd /usr/ports/security/tor && make install clean

    Make sure the tor service starts up by adding tor_enable="YES" to /etc/rc.conf.

    Last but not least, configure your browser to use tor as a proxy.

    Code:
    security/tor              An anonymizing overlay network for TCP
    security/tor-devel        An anonymizing overlay network for TCP
    security/trans-proxy-tor  Transparent proxy used to redirect TCP connections into Tor


    There are packages for all ports (but not as recent as ports), so you could try 'pkg_add -r tor'.
