Well, I thought FreeBSD guys use GRUB. Its easy to communicate with those who use FreeBSD rather than those who use Linux and discuss mostly on a theoretical basis.
I mostly wanted to know does GRUB works for other FreeBSD users. If so, I could investigate what went wrong on mine.
Btw, I did not use the port, its straight away compiled from sources. That I mentioned as the first line in my original post.
