Let me add to this (as someone who recently moved from linux to  
FreeBSD).  Unlike Linux, FreeBSD isn't just a kernel, but a complete  
operating system.  So the things in /bin and /usr/bin are as fully  
part of FreeBSD as the kernel itself, while on Linux distributions,  
those things are bundled with Linux as part of a distribution.

So this is one reason why it is best to put tools like you describe in
