Wish I could, but I don't have root on the FreeBSD machine,
and /etc/ssh only contains ssh_config, sshd_config seems to be hidden. I
would ask them, but they have been cranky since they were hacked
recently and I am a mere user on that machine.

On my own server, I have already added a 

PermitTunnel       yes

line, as that seemed the obvious (but insufficient) thing to try.

Don't suppose anyone has a working sshd_config that they can share?
