Of course you can program in raw sockets with FreeBSD, your only issue is with all the linux-isms you've possibly included in your code.
A quick glance sees quite a bit, so get busy with judicious use of #ifdef et al.
Hint: sys/sockio.h is very useful.
I have no idea about ETH_P_ALL, btw. I don't know what it does and what Linux exposes for it.

While you are certainly porting code, this isn't about creating a new port for the FreeBSD ports system. Thread moved from "Porting new software" to "Userland Programming and scripting". Your question seems to fit that category better, you might get some extra views from coders.
