It required a small hack to work in poudriere:
but if the ${PORTSDIR}/MOVED is removed, it works for now for PHP 7.2.

bhyve != Docker. These are different technologies.
The Linux equivalent of bhyve is kvm.

The closest equivalent to Docker is jail, but jail lacks all the
infrastructure and automation Docker has. There are attempts to build
something like Docker (iocage is the most known IMHO but its images are
not layered which kills all the fun).

But of course neither bhyve nor jail can run ready-made Docker
containers with PHP or whatever.
