For FreeBSD fans, a native FreeBSD app has been released for x86_64 processors. It should work with FreeBSD 7+ as long as the COMPAT_FREEBSD7 kernel option has not been disabled. Thanks go to FreeBSD Daemon for his assistance in creating this port.

I am using it for a few days now and it is working and kicking! As the binaries are statically linked I am quite sure they will be working on any 64-bit version of FreeBSD. As for 32-bit version, one can easily run 32-bit Linux versions on FreeBSD, there is practically no penalty due to system calls translation.
