I think we do. In a way, at least. I try to always use the vbox devel port 
that Bernhard updates. As soon as he pushes a port, he calls up for tests on 
the freebsd-emulators list. And  quite a bit of people reply to his calls.

I managed to compile the 4.1.0 code via the port. I made some modifications to 
the port Makefile. 2 FBSD patches are already pushed upstream in 4.1.0 (patch-
src-VBox-VMM-VMMR3-CPUM.cpp and patch-src-recompiler-target-i386-cpu.h) and 
the UDP patch applied cleanly! I still have to find out why the UDP manual 
patch didn't apply though. I am just about to run the VMs I have to see if 
everything is "normal" with this new version.

If everything is fine, I'll report my findings to Bernhard.

Alexey, could you point me to some directions for requirements and 
instructions on compiling and runnnig gns3?
