As others have said, FreeBSD's /proc doesn't give you cpuinfo or the other
metadata that Linux provides, but it shouldn't be completely empty.  A line
like this in /etc/fstab should be enough to get it working:

proc    /proc   procfs  rw      0       0

You should get a directory under /proc for every process on the system,
with a bunch of files under each one.  Try man procfs for the details.
