I've tried it on 6-STABLE (6.2.something) and it got stuck at splash 
screen.  Btw, I've noticed output like this in terminal:

expr: illegal option -- X
usage: expr [-e] expression
expr: illegal option -- D
usage: expr [-e] expression

Also, all the scripts use #!/bin/bash which doesn't work in FreeBSD.
And I'd like to install it in /usr/local/... so that all users can use 
it and it can be included in portaudit checks and checked for upgrades 
via ports system, etc etc.
