Currently net-mgmt/virt-viewer compiles without spice protocol support. Since we have deskutils/spice-gtk in ports tree I think it could be build with libspice-client-gtk-3.0.so and libspice-client-glib-2.0.so but removing --without-spice-gtk in Makefile dont help.
spice-gtk needs libusb-1.0 >= 1.0.16 on systems not supporting udev, but we only have libusb-1.0 1.0.9 on FreeBSD 10.1.
Can you please clarify the extend of this "not working"? This may be an upstream bug, as well, so any logs or screenshots may help.
I have deskutils/spice-gtk installed and libspice-client-gtk* and libspice-client-glib* libs are both present. I have removed --without-spice-gtk from /usr/ports/net-mgmt/virt-viewer/Makefile and successfully rebuild the port. But virt-viewer is not configured with spice support:
checking for SPICE_GTK... no
shurik@thinkpad:~> ldd /usr/local/bin/virt-viewer |grep spice
The same on linux box:
user@linux-lfzk:~> ldd /usr/bin/virt-viewer |grep spice
libspice-client-gtk-3.0.so.4 => /usr/lib/libspice-client-gtk-3.0.so.4 (0xb7102000)
libspice-client-glib-2.0.so.8 => /usr/lib/libspice-client-glib-2.0.so.8 (0xb64dc000)
So, adding spice support to net-mgmt/virt-viewer is not trivial and requires something more?(as Ting-Wei Lan points)
I am looking into this, as it seems it is a matter of pointing to the correct libraries and pkgdata path. I'll also engage upstream during the process for any questions. The config.log is noting it can't find spice-protocol.pc, and it isn't part of the one in our tree. So this could be a version issue with spice, as well.

I was able to get this to build, and attach to spice-gtk with some modifications.
I will add this to the port, however after doing a:
pkg install openssl spice-gtk, and then rebuilding virt-viewer as is, I was able to get it to build with spice-gtk support (and add --with-spice-gtk).
(I will modify the virt-viewer port appropriately to bring everything it needs in)
[helfman@its-helfman03 ~/workspace/ports/net-mgmt/virt-viewer]$ ldd /usr/local/bin/virt-viewer |grep spice
libspice-client-gtk-3.0.so.4 => /usr/local/lib/libspice-client-gtk-3.0.so.4 (0x801b9e000)
libspice-client-glib-2.0.so.8 => /usr/local/lib/libspice-client-glib-2.0.so.8 (0x80417a000)
Additionally, I needed to add another port, which I will attach (untested, not built on pourdiere, yet, either)

Here is the update to virt-viewer. Again, not yet build tested.
I have successfully build virt-viewer port with your patches and connect to vm spice console (oVirt). All works great. Thank you, jgh!

Add new port: devel/spice-protocol
Spice protocol defines a set of protocol messages for accessing,
controlling, and receiving inputs from remote computing devices
(e.g., keyboard, video, mouse) across networks, and sending output
to them. A controlled device can reside on either side, client
