There is, as far as I know, no organized project to port FreeBSD to
System Z.  However, I seem to recall hearing a developer mention they
had some sort of private port to that architecture as a hobby thing.  No
idea if there's anything that will even boot, let alone run.  It's
probably not something you should even think about betting your business on.

You might try asking on freebsd-hackers at ... to see if anyone has
anything worth sharing.
