The plan is to include it, the udev file system is not something that
can be ported, it is to dependent on the kernel.

As far as I know, no one is working on that. Ideally this should be
integrated to the freebsd-utils source package (possibly producing new
binary packages), but this is probably a detail, the most important job
being to port it to glibc.
