Kind of. I had problems building it. Ironically, I have -STABLE patched
to build with the Debian gcc. (3.0.4) Except the kernel, which I use the
FreeBSD compiler for. :(

If you're really interested in this, I can let you have my packaging

I needed a lot of other tools to build FreeBSD, especially the kernel,
so I just included BSD make into that. Debian's pmake package won't
build for me.
