LaTeX obviously depends on the TeX port, but this seems not to be the
problem here, unless you are using an older TeX. I have build TeX and
LaTeX several times on FreeBSD 2.0 and without any problems.

Your problem may be that the file 'hyphen.tex' is missing. It is part
of the tex_base.tar.gz dist. file, and it is installed when you
install TeX. Can  you check this?
