Unfortunately no it appears. From freshports.org http://www.freshports.org/=
x11/docker/:
"Docker is a docking application (WindowMaker dock app) which acts as a sys=
tem tray for KDE3 and GNOME2. It can be used to replace the panel in either=
 environment, allowing you to have a system tray without running the KDE/GN=
OME panel. WWW: http://icculus.org/openbox/2/docker/"
My understanding is that Docker is not compatible with FreeBSD due to kerne=
l requirements, and that jails reportedly serve a similar, if incompatible,=
 purpose, but I could be completely wrong.
