Stupid question, but if you connect the 2 Linux boxes directly
(without the FreeBSD bridge in between) can they ping eachother?

Are you using properly crossed cables?

On the FreeBSD box, you can tcpdump(8) and see the packets moving:
tcpdump -i sk0 and tcpdump -i sk1 and you will see the pick request
and ping echo packets.
