That doesn't seem like a logical error, the only occurrence of the
"unsupported file system" text in the src tree is in
/usr/src/sbin/ggate/shared/ggate.c.  Can you be more specific about the
steps you are taking to reach this error, and it's exact message.

Is there away to install FreeBSD on the standard UFS file system and then

That's a very common approach.
