Oh, I'm surprised myself. There are just few things to fix:

The script sometimes uses one "=" and sometimes two "==" for comparisions.
The /bin/sh of FreeBSD accepts just one "=" in comparisions. 
See test(1).

"echo -n" is supported in the shell of FreeBSD, but it's not standard.
You could use "printf" instead of "echo -n". That seems more 

Also the tar parameter "--directory" is a extension of GNU-tar.
You could use "-C" instead of "--directory", but be careful with that.
It seems "-C" is implemented differently.
(My FreeBSD still comes with GNU tar, but I've heard that they switch 
to their own version of tar... I'll have a look at it.)

That's all as far as I can see.
Then you can use "#!/bin/sh".
