Developer Questions (glibc i386 style backtraces)

Hello Again,

Is there a good list to ask developer questions about porting code to FreeBSD?

I have a good chunk of code to port and no doubt I will have numerous
questions about FreeBSD specific features like semaphores, posix
compliance, shared memory and so on.

Actually my current issue is the glibc i386 backtrace function from
execinfo.h. It's not a show stopper if I can't have it but I would
very much like to have it even if it means writing custom code to walk
the stack myself.

Any ideas? Googling doesn't seem to turn up anything which is to say I
guess FreeBSD doesn't have a backtrace function.

Actually does FreeBSD use glibc?
