I am currently implementing a proof-of-concept running two galera nodes
and one garb node (no db, just for quorum) on FreeBSD 11.

I had to build the packages from but even then I had to make a
few changes which, if I have time, I will submit a pull request. Just
some of the findings so far:

- It all seems to build okay with clang.
- The garbd arbitrator was not in the package.
- A number of required dependencies were not listed in the packages.
- You will probably need to write your own rc scripts.
- There doesn't seem to be any man pages.
- I did not use the mysql56-server package which is in the repo but
  instead used the FreeBSD mariadb101-server package which already has
  the patches needed.

But so far I seem to be able to create a small cluster and add and
remove nodes without too much trouble. See what happens.
