Where can I get all those cool GNU screen savers for Free/OpenBSD?

I like the set of screensavers that come with Redhat. Is there an easy way to copy those over to one of the BSDs?

Thanks for the replies. That is indeed what I was looking for. Now that it's installed I'm not having any luck getting it to work by default, so I'll search around for where I need to put the "xscreensaver" command.
