If you already have a FreeBSD installation, you can search the ports
collection:

cd /usr/ports
make search name=foo    # matches package name
make search key=bar     # matches package description

A very nice web-based tool is
http://www.freshports.org/search.php

And finally, to browse the ports collection by category, please go to
http://www.freebsd.org/ports/

HTH,
 Simon

P.S.: I just noticed: A shorter answer would have been:
