Forward error correction routines?

I am looking for /any/ forward error correction code under FreeBSD,
whether Hamming Codes, Golay Codes, Reed-Solomon, BCH codes, etc. or
convolution encoders/decoders.

All I've found is:

* libfec, which only runs under i386 (I am 64 bit), and
* reed-solomon, which is merely a library and no executables.

Is there any usable utilities? Clue please.
