This is an excerpt from a script I use to setup my RPi3 environment
after a fresh install from the image. It allows FreeBSD 11 packages to
be installed using the pkg command:
echo " "
echo "setting up pkg"
# needed for pkg because image was built against older userland
ln -s /usr/lib/libarchive.so /usr/lib/libarchive.so.6
env ABI=FreeBSD:11:aarch64 pkg bootstrap
test ! -d /usr/local/etc && mkdir -p /usr/local/etc
echo 'ABI = "FreeBSD:11:aarch64";' >> /usr/local/etc/pkg.conf
I have not used it since installed the early April 2018 image, but it
worked fine for that.
Hope this helps.
