Are you trying to build *.rpm's on FreeBSD? That is
doable, but the binary *.rpm's produced are likely
not going to usable anywhere except on FreeBSD (which
doesn't use rpmbuild) without a fair amount of work.

What problem are you trying to solve?

I can turn on my FreeBSD VM which worked with the "%fbsd8x"
build options in devtool.conf under buildbot's for several
weeks running "make check if there's really a need.

You can have the whole VM if you prepared for a 20+ GB VMFusion download.

I likely can reinstall and redo the entire VM and build RPM from
a cvs checkout in less time than the download takes.
