Like you said, if he wants to send mail through the FreeBSD server, using
his prime.gushi.org domain, he should add "ip4:126.96.36.199" to his SPF
records for that domain (or do some SRS forward rewriting).
But what's mx2.freebsd.org not being listed as an MX of freebsd.org got to
do with SPF?? There's no requirement, whatsoever, for mx2.freebsd.org to be
an official FreeBSD MX record. Who cares? FreeBSD includes
"ip4:188.8.131.52" in its SPF records (which is mx2.freebsd.org). That's all
SPF needs to know.
