Here is a tentative rewrite at the beginning and the end of rebase-am:

    # The whole contents of the file is run by dot-sourcing this
    # file from inside a shell function.  It used to be that
    # "return"s we see below were not inside any function, and
    # expected to return from the function that dot-sourced us.
    # However, FreeBSD /bin/sh misbehaves on such a construct and
    # continues to run the statements that follow such a "return".
    # As a work-around, we introduce an extra layer of a function
    # here, and immediately call it after defining it.
    git_rebase__am () {


    # ... and then we call the whole thing.

By the way, you have this in your log message:

    ... the git-rebase--*.sh scripts have used a "return" to return
    from the "dot" command that runs them.  While this is allowed by
