sure, if it runs on FreeBSD.   Look for the porting handbook.  If you're the 
only one that wants to use it, you may have to do the porting.

Lots of ports run under linux emulation.  
Did you get it working well under emulation on FreeBSD?  If so, then it would 
be a good candidate for a port (if anyone wants to use it and do the porting)
