Of course, we're also inerested in getting (remote access to) systems that
are not yet in our nightly testing pool (cf.
http://monetdb.cwi.nl/Development/TestWeb/Platforms/), like e.g., FreeBSD ;-)

In principle, MonetDB 4.10.2 (and higher) should compile and work also on
FreeBSD, however lacking (access to) a respective system, we cannot test
this ourselves. To "support" FreeBSD, we'd need remote ssh access to such a
system, ~1GB temporary disk space and the "right" to run nightly (0:00 CET -
~8:00 CET) tests.

Cheers,

Stefan
