     On a FreeBSD 7.2-STABLE system, a "cd /usr/ports; make search name=phone"
yields a lot that is irrelevant, but also a few that you might look into a
bit further.  Extracting the important lines gives:

Port:   kphone-4.2_2
Path:   /usr/ports/net/kphone
Info:   A voice over internet phone
WWW:    http://www.wirlab.net/kphone/

Port:   linphone-3.1.2,1
Path:   /usr/ports/net/linphone
Info:   A web phone that supports SIP protocol
WWW:    http://www.linphone.org/

     In the search output there was also a couple of video conferencing tools:

Port:   cphone-0.3.2.c.20060407_5
Path:   /usr/ports/net/cphone
Info:   H323 Video Conferencing Program which uses QT
WWW:    http://cphone.sourceforge.net/

Port:   ohphone-1.4.5_5
Path:   /usr/ports/net/ohphone
Info:   H323 Video Conferencing Program, compatible with NetMeeting
WWW:    http://www.openh323.org/

     A "make search key=zrtp" turns up:

Port:   twinkle-1.4.2
Path:   /usr/ports/net/twinkle
Info:   Soft phone for your VoIP communcations using the SIP protocol
WWW:    http://www.twinklephone.com/

     Disclaimer:  I know nothing about any of the software listed above.
I cannot say whether it will do what you want done, nor can I vouch for
its security.  You may choose to find out more at the web sites listed
above, or you may simply ignore this message.
