You might want to take a look at PC-BSD or ask on their forums.  They got 
beryl working out of the box rather nicely, though I noticed missing 
window decorations on occasion for some windows (without any pattern I 
could figure out).

In any case, this is certainly an issue to take upstream as it's rather 
unlikely to be a FreeBSD issue.
