The only problem I can see -- assuming it runs at all -- is that any
tech support contracts for the software will likely assume you're
running it under Linux.  They may not be happy trying to troubleshoot
it under FreeBSD and may want to blame the OS for any problems you
encounter.  I try to run commercial software on "officially supported"
operating systems just for that reason.
