I'm already familiar with Debian and Ubuntu. At the moment I'm fiddling around with FreeBSD on a server, after installing it I'm wondering what the best way would be to install the 'essential' compilation/make/gcc packages.

FreeBSD always includes a compiler and basic build environment out of the box. There is no "build essential" type package, because it is not necessary.
