– the package was removed more than two years ago. From <https://github.com/freebsd/freebsd-ports/commit/f118043f7e5359baac271e6812336cd7c3eb41f6>:

I believe this Compiz was merged into KDE wasn't it? Unless I'm misremembering either removal or a note on how to access these features within KDE would be nice.
