Linux /proc on FreeBSD

Hey everyone,

i am going to port a server that i am currently working on to FreeBSD.
I don't have much experience with FreeBSD yet.
The only real big thing i have to change is the way some data is
fetched. In the Linux version i read in data like the hostname, the
domainname, the kernel version etc from /proc.

Is there a central point to look for those values in FreeBSD?
If not, where do i get those values?

I _don't_ want to use external binaries like sysctl etc...

Thank you!
