Have you asked the port maintainer? According to
/usr/ports/games/stockfish/Makefile

I have no idea whatsoever, but I would start by looking whether
Xboard can interface with Stockfish.

(I note that 15.1 has now reached the ports tree).
Had not asked the maintainer but will look into it.

It seems there need to be intermediaries such as
PolyGlot or UCI2WB to bridge between Stockfish's
UCI protocol and Xboard's CECP protocol...there is
also a Fairy-Stockfish that extends Stockfish and
can deal with Xboard.

The following works on 12.3, at least for stockfish 14:

pkg install stockfish
pkg install eboard
pkg install polyglot

create a polyglot.ini file in ~/.eboard/eng-out by following the
instructions at:

https://askubuntu.com/questions/124297/running-stockfish-rykba-engines-with-eboard

(except use /usr/local/bin/stockfish instead of /usr/games/stockfish)

start it up with the instructions at the askubuntu link.
