have you followed the installation instructions for your platform? facter

do you need to compile from source for a specific reason - generally there are precompiled packages for most platforms ..

Do you know the one from bsd ports use which version of facter?

FreeBSD 10.2-RELEASE here, installed `sysutils/puppet4`, got facter version `2.4.4`. Modern facts came with facter v3. So depending on, whether you already rely on modern facts, it's too old. The latest port `sysutils/puppet4` version `4.6.2` depends on `rubygem-facter-2.4.6`. That's still too old.
