FreeBSD (or any BSD) is apparently a bit difficult beast to master (I
am responsible for the Linux RPM's and the Windows installer. You can
check them out at http://download.boseco.com if you decide to switch
platform ;) ).

There are BSD specific instructions available on sguil.net how to get
it working. I am sure Bamm or Richard will reply on this with some
*BSD instructions shortly, but I haven't used BSD myself for the last
4 years so.
