I don't run GUIs on my FreeBSD servers, so I've never had to do  
anything like this. In fact, I would do it the other way around, if I  
had to... run the virtual desktop on the Mac, and log into the  
FreeBSD server.

Not that I actually run X on the server. I just SSH into the box, or  
use a virtual console connection, in case I can't SSH into the box  
(not that that has ever happened...)
