probably should add that you will also need to enable and start spamassassin  module after installing spamassassin by doing:

echo 'spamd_enable="YES"' >>/etc/rc.conf
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/spamd start

sounds like ports aren't installed.

do the following to install the ports tree:

portsnap fetch
portsnap extract

then try and install spamassassin again.

oh, and after enabling spamassassin, you start it by running:
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/sa-spamd start
