If you get the PC-BSD memstick, it boots FreeBSD with a GUI.  You'll 
want the USB Live probably.  The PC-BSD versions match the FreeBSD 
versions.  If you're running 8.3, get the 8.3 memstick for instance. 
You could be safe just copying the libc from PC-BSD to your host, and 
then just reinstall for sanity's sake.
