On a Debian GNU/Linux installation, I'm not really sure of the package's purpose. Hopefully someone else could explain? The only thing I can think of is that someone might want to use it with Qemu, or a para-virtualised Xen guest domain perhaps? Also it is a convenient side-effect that if the GNU/Linux buildds build the kFreeBSD kernel as well, that might reveal some problem in the code or toolchain that wasn't noticeable when the kfreebsd-* buildds built it.
