I've run into this sort of thing myself. IMHO, the problem is
perhaps a bit of overzealousness on the part of developers to
get people to "upgrade". Apparently 6.0 is considered too
obsolete to maintain on mainstream servers, not that I really
know as I have nothing to do with any of that.

If you want to run the package that was released with 6.0,
apparently ImageMagick-6.2.2.1.tbz, you can try the URL
<ftp://ftp-archive.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD-Archive/old-releases/>.
