Did you try building barnyard from ports?  That should work fine.  (I'm the 
port maintaner.)  I'm not sure why the package failed.  the acid_alert_db 
plugin is compiled in by default.  Where did you download the package from?

If you want to build from source, you'll have to edit configure.in to get 
barnyard to compile correctly on FreeBSD.

Look at the patch file in /usr/ports/security/barnyard/files/.
