Tuning httpd for Wordpress isn't directly FreeBSD specific.
I'd start with tuning Wordpress itself, i.e.: Install wp-cache

Next, and this tends to get in Wordpress' way, so be careful,
install APC:

Finally, once you've made your application and your PHP installation
perform, look into tuning httpd.

I'm currently reworking on making Sander S. Temme's Performance
presentation into the new performance documentation:

(since the old one is quite horrid: )

Finally, look into Caching. In an ideal world, you would
serve your static assets from a server which doesn't even
have mod_php loaded, but that's a perfect world in which
most of us don't live ;)

(Here's a writeup by me on that topic:
That will probably be incorporated into PerformanceScalingUp 
document as well.)
