I've tried building it today, natively (and not as linux emulated.) Hit some
build problems midway including a siginfo_t one that I mentioned in an email
a few hours back. I think I've fixed that one but am still yet to fix

Does anyone know the exact build procedure for FreeBSD? Have we had a
successful build from trunk thus far?
