Just get some binaries and put them wherever you want. Shared libraries
must go in /compat/linux/lib or /compat/linux/usr/lib.

If you want something REALLY fun, try making a Linux from Scratch system
on FBSD. You'll need to make two cross-compilers first: one 
        build = FreeBSD         host = FreeBSD          target = Linux
and one
        build = FreeBSD         host = Linux            target = Linux
                                (Linux emulation)

Not for the faint of heart. (I couldn't do this, so maybe this is all wrong).

For sane people, no tarballs, just binaries. :-)

But yes, just put the programs wherever you want.

But they must be branded:
$ brandelf -f 3 myprog
