Oh, you're using FreeBSD.  Their goofy libevent2 port screws
everything up.  Build Tor using the security/tor-devel port.

If you insist on not using the port, you need to run:

  export CFLAGS=-I/usr/local/include/event2
  export LDFLAGS=-L/usr/local/lib/event2

before compiling Tor.  But if you couldn't figure that out on your
own, you really *really* should be using the FreeBSD port for Tor.
