Unfortunately it's a bit more complicated than that, as our meta
packages like gnome-core or gnome-session are modelled around
gnome-shell, especially gnome-session. If we go the route of marking
gnome-shell linux-any, those meta-package and their inter-dependencies
would have to be reworked quite a bit.

As a port of NetworkManager is unlikely, the only remaining option I
see, is that we try to make the NM integration in gnome-shell optional.

But this needs someone running gnome-shell on kfreebsd and who would be
willing to help with testing and fixing the issues that will come up.

So far we don't even know if anyone has been running gnome-shell
successfully on kfreebsd (i.e. the 3.0 version, without the NM dependency)


Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
