Yes, I am sure:-). Powerdot class of presentations is designed to use PS 
tricks and can not be compiled with pdflatex or should I say you can 
compile but you will lose most of graphics and colors.

If you want to try let me know of the mailing list and I will send you a 
file for you to try. By the way powerdot class is not included in the 
standard teTeX distribution and has never been ported to FreeBSD. That 
is way, I use TeXLive. On the same note teTeX port of FreeBSD doesn't 
contain the fonts necessary for building the package from the 
source(which is trivial), actually even worse it contains the older 
version of fonts with lots of dependencies. teTeX is dead and the 
efforts of the community should be directed towards porting TeXLive to 
FreeBSD.

Best,
