Unless you really really really want to run native FBSD, I'd suggest
installing Virtualbox under MacOS and running FreeBSD inside
Virtualbox.  Works great, avoids all of the hardware support issues.

I have it set up so I can ssh into the virtual FBSD box from a MacOS
terminal line, and run X programs under FBSD that use the native
XQuartz X server under MacOS.
