And, as they say on https://people.freebsd.org/~pav/boinc.html: "World Community Grid will send Linux app to FreeBSD client. Make sure you have Linux emulation enabled and linux_base-fc4 port installed before attaching.
Most other Linux science apps runs on FreeBSD under Linux emulation. You may want to enable ALT option in the boinc-client port.*
Be sure you have elf fallback sysctl set!
kern.elf32.fallback_brand=3
Alternatively, you can download Linux app, brandelf it to Linux type, write a app_info.xml file for it and place it to the right place under /var/db/boinc."

*= The BOINC-client will either see 'i686-pc-freebsd' or 'x86_64-pc-freebsd' on boot, depending on your CPU architecture.
In order to get Linux apps you should have 'i686-pc-linux-gnu' and/or 'x86_64-pc-linux-gnu' as alternative platform(s).
