I have a 6.4 machine (about to be retired). On that machine, man 4 re says 
it supports the RTL8111S, but does not mention the RTL8111GR. My guess is 
that your GR will probably work, but it's only a guess. If worse comes to 
worst, throw in a PCI ethernet card from the parts bin.

For reference, you can find man pages for many BSDs (and others) at 
http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi - for FreeBSD, this covers 7.2-RELEASE 
back to 1.0-RELEASE.
