As Polytropon suggested, you might ask in freebsd-embedded at freebsd.org 
where some Atmel-savvy people lurk, though I've not noticed Arduinos 
mentioned for some time.  Warner (cc'd) will surely be up to date.

Just asking the search box atop www.freebsd.org 'arduino' returns quite 
a lot including from forums, but as you say, nothing looks that recent.

I had some really great fun writing a pair of cooperating gadgets with 
16MHz ATtiny45s using devel/avra, that never made it as far as silicon, 
but wow, nearly 10 years ago .. so ATmega64 is Really Big Iron to me :)

cheers, Ian
