AFAIK there is no equivalent to Mosix on FreeBSD (though I think mosix 
was initially developed on BSD OS). There is no checkpointing in FBSD 
but there is a working implementation in DragonFly BSD (which I'd like 
to see backported to FBSD but I am far from being able to do the job).

If you just want to run MPI apps, ports/net/mpich runs fine. I have also 
worked flawlessly with LAM but it is not in the ports system.
