You basically just need to fetch geli sources by editting
freebsd-utils' debian/rules, then provide a patch to make
those sources build, and figure out if any library or
kernel headers are missing.
If libraries are missing they need to be added to
Build-Depends field in debian/control, if kernel headers
are missing, just copy them by hand and file a bug
report on kfreebsd-kernel-headers requesting them.
Don't worry if you make a mistake on the Debian side
of things, they're easy to fix. If you have any doubts
you're more than welcome to ask.
