I have some positive feedback and support offer from Enlightenment /
EFL team in porting EFL+E components to FreeBSD in general and also to
run on Wayland :-)

to make eeze use whatever *bsd uses for devices, then that would be
great !! In all honesty, the *bsd port should not really use
deprecated ecore_wl, ecore_drm libraries. Those are terribly old, have
a few flaws, are unmaintained, and have since been replaced w/
ecore_wl2 & ecore_drm2. Also, if someone would like to provide patches
for ecore_wl2 to support *bsd, please don't hesitate to submit them."

Anyone interested please feel free to join the effort :-)

Best regards :-)
