My best guess is that you have downloaded the source for Linux, and are
trying to compile it on FreeBSD? That won't work I'm afraid, they are
entirely different operating systems.
I don't believe that Realtek currently provide public documentation or a
FreeBSD driver for this chipset, so I suspect your only option right now
is to wait for somebody to write a driver from scratch for it. I'm not
aware of any efforts to do this at the moment.
FWIW, I have several samples of this chipset that I could potentially
provide to somebody willing to write a driver.
