If you are interest, I have a full mate desktop working on FreeBSD 12
both i386 and amd64 with more than 1600 packages compiled and working

just edir the /etc/pkg/FreeBSD.conf to look like:
  enabled: yes
create user (not root) and password...
than.... pkg install -y mate-extras....
the system will install about 1.5 GB of a full mate desktop...
reboot the machine. Will come with a gdm-1.21 display... 
the first login, the system will create the desktop and will logout
the next login, you will be in the Mate desktop 1.20
