By posting here, the OP is more likely to get an answer from other users
who are using app X on FreeBSD.  

Asking in the App X forum is likely to get an unhelpful answer from
*their* local curmudgeons: "No one here uses FreeBSD, and it's not a
priority for the App X developers. Go away."

My point being, getting App X working on FreeBSD is often a higher
priority for us than it is for them, and someone here might have already
gone to the trouble of figuring it out.  I see nothing wrong in asking
whether that's the case.
