Hi folks!

I recently installed freeBSD on a virtual machine just to play around with it and got a few questions.
I've downloaded a port called doom (I assume it's the original source files) and another called freedoom. Doom one refused to build with 'Failed to open 'linuxdoom-1.10.src.tgz' error showing up (I have installed all dependencies including the zip archiver).
I had no trouble with building freedoom port but now I have no clue on how to start it.

Can somebody explain me what I am doing wrong?

I think the freedoom is just the wad file for a doom engine and/or frontend. Try installing something like Chocolate doom which is an actual frontend to run whichever wad file(s) you install.
