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.
