[fpc-pascal] FPC sources in FreeBSD

I installed FreeBSD 10.3 under VirtualBox. This is the first time I
use FreeBSD. Cool!
I managed to install X, XFCE and all applications I need.
FPC and Lazarus both work.

Only thing missing now is FPC source code, needed by Lazarus.
Can it be installed from ports with "pkg" command?
I don't see sources in "pkg search fpc" output list.

BTW, the list starts like this:
 # pkg search fpc
 fpc-3.0.0 Free Pascal compiler with Turbo and Delphi

Funny :)

Another thing missing from my FreeBSD is proper keyboard mapping. It
behaves like US keyboard now.
I remember similar problems with Linux distros a _long_ time ago.
Anyway, this is not an FPC issue. I will find the configuration somewhere.

One more question:
Is installing OpenBSD much more difficult? I may try it, too.
