The BSD daemon image stems from around 4.3BSD, or an even earlier 
release, not FreeBSD.  It can therefore never be specific for the 
FreeBSD system, in the same way Ronald McDonald doesn't stand for the 
Big Mac alone, but rather for the entire company.  In earlier years, 
before the general hype about Linux and *BSD, I've seen the image being 
used in presentations about Unix in general.
