Sorry, I'm late. Back to 2013 I ported Ardour 3.3 to FreeBSD.
But sadly the ports infrastructure changed a lot and the port has not
been commited that time.
Right now I'm working on those wold ports (ardour and dependencies) to
submit the renew "staged" ports.

https://github.com/marcelbonnet/freebsd-ports/tree/ardour3.3 has these
work in progress.

Robin (x42) helped me that time, some patches I made were upload
upstream too. I hope I can start it again and do something in a
regular basis.
