[Gluster-users] glusterfs and zfs and freeBSD

Hi list,

I used zfs on FreeBSD 8.0 for a while now which is just fine. The
next step would be to combine it with glusterfs and even heartbeat.
I installed fuse (from the ports) already and while compiling glusterfs
2.0.9 or 3.0.0 or 3.0.2 I always get this:

Making all in posix

I had success with version 1.3.12 though. FreeBSD 7.0 or 7.2 seems to
be the better choice here but zfs is not as mature as on 8.0. 

Is there a chance to have FreeBSD 8.0 running zfs and glusterfs 3.x or

Apart from that Linux plus zfs is not what I want but opensolaris might
be an option. Should I consider this and drop FreeBSD?
