Pierre does OpenBSD and NetBSD, and the level should be decent, but still
they are only on the first beta level.

OTOH, I don't get that much FreeBSD specific feedback either. Sometimes
nothing a whole release cycle.  At least as far as dynamic linking goes
(making shared libraries in FPC), FreeBSD is less far than Linux.

Another reason to choose FreeBSD over net/oipen is that recent versions are much faster in
 Virtual Box.
