Have you actually tried to compile and run the latest version - 4.09 on
a FreeBSD machine? I am on the BOINC forum, and there are horror stories
there about individuals that have not been able to get BOINC compiled
and running correctly. There was some serious work done on version 4.05,
but it was not perfected. In addition, the GUI is not yet available for
the non-windows version of BOINC, although hopefully it will be soon.

Personally, I run BOINC, with a total of three different projects on a
WinXP machine. It runs there flawlessly.

Just my 2 cents!
