cuda device support is there, what I believe is missing is the compiler, 
libraries and assorted tools.  I currently use cuda on my FreeBSD laptop 
via the linuxlator (using the gentoo_stage_3 port and chrooting into 
it).  The cuda run time works almost out of the box (if I recall 
correctly all you need to do is change modprobe since the run time tries 
to auto load the Linux kernel binary), and from there you can build and 
run cuda based apps.
