oflag option in GNU dd - equivalent in FreeBSD dd ?

I am used to using this command in Linux, using GNU

dd if=/blah of=/bleh oflag=append conv=notrunc

The problem is, FreeBSD 'dd' does not understand the
"oflag" argument.

Is there some equivalent in the FreeBSD 'dd' syntax
that I can use, or am I forced to install GNU utils ?
