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.
