Are you asking if FreeBSD can be made to run the ESX software so that a FreeBSD server can virtualize multiple systems, or are you asking if an ESX server can create a virtual machine that FreeBSD can run in? If your using the commercial ESX product I would assume you would be using it on it's own "bare metal" product incarnation which I think uses a hacked-up version of Linux (without a compiler or any other normal Linux tools). In that case I do not see why you would have a problem running multiple FreeBSD virtual servers on the ESX server.
