Yes, definitely.  Building FreeBSD on other platforms is one of the requests we 
get very often from embedded systems vendors.  Cheap virtualisation has made it 
less urgent (they can just stick a FreeBSD VirtualBox VM on their 
workstations), but it's definitely something we'd like eventually.  To my 
knowledge, no one is working on it, but we should aim to make life easy for 
whoever does...
