I tried about a year or so ago, but gave up.  The SAPDB "build tools" are
extremely Linux-centric (they expect a LSB-compliant filesystem layout, and
it's next to impossible to trick it, as paths are hardcoded everywhere).
Furthermore, the actual SAPDB product is again, Linux-centric and has all
the warts that one would expect.

I eventually gave up and just ran it in Linux emulation -- much less effort
than making a FreeBSD port.
