Building PyMOL under FreeBSD is very straightforward. Make sure that you have installed on your system the following FreeBSD ports: libglut, py26-tkinter, freetype2, glew. You will also need to build from source Python megawidgets.
Once you have satisfied these dependencies, you will probably need to edit some paths to header files in the build script present in the pymol source directory; look for the line

else: # linux or other unix

which is followed by something like:


You will probably need to change /usr/include/freetype2 to /usr/local/include/freetype2 and to add additional paths to /usr/local/include and /usr/X11R6/include.

Once you are done, just type in your shell:

$ python build
# python install
# python install

If the build process succeeds, you will obtain a pymol executable in your current working directory.
