Since you're a relative newcomer I'll start from the beginning and
assume nothing about what you may already know.

Yes!  This mailing list is all about discussing FreeBSD's builtin test
suite.  To install it, you'll have to rebuild world.  On CURRENT or
stable/10 (not stable/9), set WITH_TESTS="yes" in /etc/src.conf, then
rebuild world according to the instructions here:
You should now have the test suite installed at /usr/tests.  To run
it, you must install devel/kyua from ports, then do:
$ cd /usr/tests
$ kyua test
$ kyua report

See tests(7) for more details.

In addition to the standard test suite, there are some tests in
/usr/src/tools/regression.  They aren't run automatically, so some of
them may be broken.  Converting them to the standard test suite is a
work in progress.  But if there's a specific feature that you want to
to test, you may find a relevant test in there.
