You cannot mix and match FreeBSD and Linux libraries.  You can however
*run* your pre-compiled Linux binary, and it is possible to also
compile a Linux binary on FreeBSD (install the linux_devtools port and
then chroot to /compat/linux, then compile it "as normal"; you may
need to add additional RPM packages.)
