Hello,
I would like to ask, if there is Blender (2.48 or newer) for FreeBSD.
Thanks for answer.

You do need OpenGL so having accelerated 3D helps. What videocard do you have?

The port was often (semi-)broken or out of date ... Glad to see it has a different maintainer now ... I always had problems communicating with the old one. Hope this has improved now.

I have an NVidia 7600GT, blender works perfectly with the binary nvidia drivers.
But for the binary nvidia drivers to work you will have to install fbsd-i386.

Unless you have more then 3GB of memory I recommend sticking to i386 anyway.

FYI, there is no 3D acceleration for that GPU (Radeon 3300) under FreeBSD at the moment.

Hopefully in the next few months, but not yet.
