Can I delete /root/authorized_keys in FreeBSD.  I've had some break-ins and want to cover all bases.

You can. Private/public key based login for root will no longer be possible, though - if "/root/authorized_keys"  is actually configured as root's "AuthorizedKeysFile" in sshd_config, that is. The default location in BSD is ~/.ssh/authorized_keys, however!
