I'll be happy to help out. I'm extremely enthusiastic about Mono's
progress. I administer IIS6 servers and I am looking forward to
experience how Mono and Asp.Net compare.

I know that all my FreeBSD 4.x machines have /usr/lib/libc.so.4, while
my FreeBSD 5 machines use /lib/libc.so.5 (with /usr/lib/libc.so
symlinked to it). I can try and do a little research on the topic, but
I'm sure there are some more experience FreeBSD users that will know the
answer right away.

Just let me know what you would like me to try. I'll gladly donate some
of my time to getting this working in a FreeBSD environment.
