I would like to integrate these changes somehow in our sources, but
the monetdb_config.h file is auto generated by autoconf's configure
script, so I guess that we miss some autoconf line needed for FreeBSD.

I had a look at the result
The 2 which couldn't be executed are probably related to missing
depending libraries, such as lib netcdf.
So thats not a problem
2 tests with slightly different output is also not a problem, these
are related small differences in round of float and double values.
We have these too between a number of our systems
The second 'SIGNIFICANT' difference is just the output of random,
ie not a problem, but we should fix the test that this doesn't cause
a failed test.
The remaining failure seems more serious. The value is somehow equal
to LLONG_MIN which in our case is the nil (SQL NULL) value.
Could you send the LLONG_MIN/MAX values from your system include
file (on linux this is /usr/include/limits.h not sure if BSD has it
also in this file).
Conclusion is that its almost perfect score, not bad for a new platform.
