I'm ok with this approach. Can we then do the following?
* Document the issues when deploying FreeBSD.
* Remove any references to us officially supporting FreeBSD (are there any?)
* Ask for contributions from the FreeBSD community, especially if someone wants
  to take over maintainership of the port.
