gforge *is* debian centric.
I'm sorry I don't have a full use/knowlegde of gforge, I use it only for
basic stuff (and I made a port for someone who switch to debian just
after its commit so I never got usefull feedback)

Last time I created an account it was "correctly" done.
Did you already configure an account where UID >= 1000 ?
It was on 3.0, maybe code changed since.

Since gforge is debian centric, account creation processes are not well
documented. As you surely read, I said that gforge is a huge and complex
port, and I don't have the project to heavily test it. I would be
honoured to collaborate with you to make it better and less painful to
use under FreeBSD.
