I didn't try to update things I didn't feel I knew enough about,
or things that I would have had to research.  Feel free to make
any further updates or pass them along to me.  I unfortunately
don't have time to deal with all of it since mike@ disappeared.

Certainly not. :)  It's still on the list to remind people to think
about how to address it.  In general there are three strategies:

1. Bring the base system into compliance.
2. Add a port and document where people can find it.
3. Document why we do not support it.

I think the original plan was to have a posix(7) to document what
FreeBSD does and doesn't support and why, but we could just as
easily have a section in the manual if someone wants to take that
project on.
