Development of pulseaudio is certainly a bit of a linux-focused
affair. But we very much want other platforms to be included as well,
as can be seen by the OSX, *BSD, Solaris and win32 support currently
in the tree.

There is already some FreeBSD specific code in PulseAudio upstream.
Especially considering some changes required to make pulse run on
freebsd and netbsd are quite similar, I think it makes sense to submit
your patches.
