A good one doesn't really exist. The pkgadd command will add packages you downloaded from sunfreeware.com...but you have to download anything you want to install (and it's listed dependecies). Not quite like apt-get or yum...but it's better than compiling.
That being said...youu can try blastwave. It works similar to apt-get or yum...but there is no GUI frontend (that I know of). Go to: http://www.blastwave.org/howto.html
for more info.
After it's set up it works like apt-get. It will install the package and all of it's dependencies. After it's configured you can install firefox like this:
host# pkg-get -i firefox
All packages installs in /usr/local and will have to be put in your $PATH in order for you to use the commands/packages.
Hope this helps!
