This environment will have two identical / separate
systems referred to as “System A” and “System B”

-       I want to install FreeBSD on to “System A”
-       Once that installation is complete with selected
ports and custom applications, I want to make an exact
duplicate of “System A” on “System B”

I don’t want to do this with drives in the same
system, rather I would like to “clone” “System A”

run liveCD on system B, make partitions as you like, newfs, mount as needed under say /mnt (like /mnt, /mnt/usr etc), set up network and do

cd /mnt
rsh -l root IP_of_systemA "tar --one-file-system -cf - / /usr /othermountpoint 
/anothermointpoint"|tar xpf -
cd /
umount /mnt

make sure you did

bsdlabel -B yourfirstdrive

on systema activate rshd and add ip of systemb to .rhosts in /root, at least temporarily.

keep machines in sync with rsync, prepare your rsync script, exclude list etc etc.
