Porting Mupen 64 to FreeBSD.

Hello all.

Mupen 64 is an open source Nintendo 64 emulator that uses SDL. It runs
quite well and is compatible with many games.

I have successfully built it and used it on FreeBSD quite some time ago,
and still have all of my notes on how to get it to build. I tested it
with an nVidia GeForce 4 MX 440 card and the nvidia drivers.

For quite some time (since December 2003) I've been interested in
scrapping my linux-mupen64 port and replacing it with a native version.

If I am to do this, I would like some help in the following way: 

I would like someone else to create the individual ports for all the
plugins Mupen 64 uses (without them, the emulator itself is useless).

The idea of porting the plugins scares me away every time, even though
there are only like 5 or 6 of them. Most of them build with little
modification out of the box (or atleast the versions I used in 2003

If any of you are interested in doing just that, we could have a native
version of Mupen 64 in ports very soon.
