I think this was the latest version of truecrypt on FreeBSD but it's not a port yet.

Why does it have to be a "folder" (directory..)?

tar(1) + openssl(1) are all you need to achieve what you want in a mostly portable way.. though, adding/removing entries from archives might be an issue, another option would be using the archivers/zip port. (As a substitute for tar, not openssl.. zip encryption is poor.)

Another option would be creating a dedicated partition, encrypted, owned by your user account with proper permissions preventing read/write access from other users.

Ccrypt will alow you to encrypt files and folders with a password.

Another option could be:

/usr/ports/sysutils/fusefs-encfs

depending on your specific requirements of course.
