fbsdmake will be just one of many tools you'll find you need. A
libfbsdcompat would be useful to this endevor. If I were you, I would
try to create one using FreeBSD src/ - that is assume a checked out
FreeBSD is available. See some of my sed'ing and unifdef*(1) hacks I've
used over the years to build GNU stuff on FreeBSD.
