I had an idea to port DK to FreeBSD as a wrapper around HAL. The reason
for this is that FreeBSD doesn't have udev (or sysfs), and a lot of
effort went in to abstracted the various hardware properties in hal, so
those methods should probably be leveraged. Libhal also provides a good
API for performing many of the operations required by DK.
However, I haven't started any work on this. Yes, getting DK on FreeBSD
is a priority, especially for GNOME 3.0.
