No, at least nothing has been discussed here.

I think so. farp_spoofer.c is probably the only part that needs porting,
and that doesn't have that much code. I'm no FreeBSD expert, but as long
as you have AF_PACKET and BPF it looks absolutely doable. 

As you already noticed, the most tricky part is probably to get the
includes right on both systems.
