Correct, it's not supported.  The GEM driver in FreeBSD supports the
ethernet controller that's on the SunBlade-100 systems which isn't
the same ethernet controller as what SUN calls the GEM interface.

>From the gem(4) manual page:

     The gem driver provides support for the GMac Ethernet hardware found
     mostly in the last Apple PowerBooks G3s and most G4-based Apple hardware,
     as well as many Sun UltraSPARCs.
