Have a look at http://wiki.freebsd.org/AvoidingLinuxisms for some  
generic advise. Feel free to propose things to add there (or add them  
yourself, we hand out write access upon request).

If you do not know how to port a specific part of an application to  
FreeBSD, feel free to ask here (or on a more specific ML, e.g. if it  
is network related, the network ML of FreeBSD is maybe better suited).
