Does anyone have an SD image of this build? My FreeBSD box is down for the count, was hoping the Pi could replace it but I have that chicken/egg situation.

I've built one from FreeBSD-CURRENT as of a few days ago. Please note that there's no working SD card support in there yet, so it's actually two images, one for boot (SD card) and one for root (USB).

You can find the images and instructions here: http://raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/a/3322/2966

I've updated the above images with a newer build, which now supports SD cards, so you no longer need a USB memory stick.

FreeBSD all the way! One of my friends managed to get it running on a Wii. :D

For those like me that subscribed to this thread ages ago, you can find FreeBSD 10.0-RELEASE builds here:
