It can't, support is not compiled in by default.. the kernel configuration has "option NTFS" commented out, uncommenting it passes -DNTFS to the compiler, without it several sections of code are omitted.

I wouldn't use it though, it's marked experimental.. if you want to use BSD, just forget about NTFS, it's a horrible file system.
