I'm running the CVS version of Emacs on FreeBSD/amd64 since several
weeks ago, after the emacs-devel people reviewed the source changes I
made to make it buildable on FreeBSD/amd64.

This diff:
http://people.freebsd.org/~keramida/emacs/22/freebsd-amd64+libgcc.patch

includes all the changes I keep locally for running cvs-emacs on amd64,
until they are committed to the Emacs source tree.

I don't know what sort of support you would be satisfied with, or if
your local environment allows running the current development version of
Emacs out of CVS, but my own experience so far suggests that the people
who frequent the emacs-devel mailing list are quite helpful and reply
very fast to any queries I make; that's all I need to run Emacs on my
FreeBSD/amd64 systems :)
