  I recently played around with LinuxBIOS and FreeBSD. In short, it 
somewhat works in QEMU using ADLO, see [1]. While trying to build 
LinuxBIOS and ADLO on FreeBSD, I came across some problems. They all 
come from the assumption that "make" is "GNU make" which isn't true on 
the BSDs. I've uploaded some really hackish patches to [2]. 
Unfortunately, I have no idea how to detect FreeBSD from a Makefile or a 
Python script. But maybe someone on this list knows and wants enhance 
the patches so they can be included in the LinuxBIOS tree.
