Casper uses squashfs, unionfs, /sys/block, udev, klibc, if these tools are
available to KfreeBSD maybe it will work out of the box, otherwise a
replacement (or a clone) for these features is needed.

In other words Casper should be extended to do what Freesbie[0] guys
are doing with their code. AFAIK, there's no squashfs, but there's
unionfs and probably /sys/block and udev can be easily worked around.
I dunno about how to use a klibc replacement but maybe the kFreeBSD
porters can shed some light.
