This has been discussed several times in recent months on the
Debian lists. I participated briefly in one of the more recent
ones. I offered my assistance, boxes to do the work on, they
(Debian) even setup a mailing list (debian-bsd) I believe, and
I worked up a set of patches to get dpkg to compile on a FreeBSD
box. But it seems interest has fallen off since the mailing list
doesn't seem to work anymore (or didn't for a peroid of time
immediately following one of my posts several months ago).
