This is silly, all the firmware in /etc/firmware allows free distribution and what isn't is installed via fw_update(1). You can easily pkg_delete what you don't like. If you're worried about scary evil "Microcode", then you probably shouldn't run a modern Intel or AMD machine, not including all the firmware on flash or ROM, your BIOS likely loaded CPU microcode that is almost entirely undocumented magic. Hilarious.. -Bryan.
