PC-BSD was about the most complete attempt at a BSD-based desktop system. The last time I looked it suffered from the general problem of missing proprietary drivers for bits of hardware but overall it was pretty nice.

As for packaging apps: the ports system and the various port managers on BSD have always provided an excellent basis for this.
