Do you have the install package downloaded on another media (such as a CD-ROM or USB key). If not, you could go to another computer that has an internet connection enabled, grab the package and transfer it to a CD or USB key.
Then plug in the media to your freebsd box and mount it (I'm assuming it is mounted on /mnt/cdrom here)
Then, you can install it with:
sudo pkg_add git.tbz
Hope this helps.
