You might want to take a look at pam_mkhomedir (security/pam_mkhomedir 
in ports)


This is a PAM module which will create the $HOME for the user authenticated,
if it's not already there. It also copies over files from a skel directory
( default /usr/share/skel ) and can set the permission of the newly created
$HOME to a value of your choice
