Yes.

No it's not _required_

GNUstep works perfectly fine (with one exception) on FreeBSD using the
following ports/versions:

  - ffcall 1.8
  - freetype2 2.1.2
  - gcc 3.0.4 (make WANT_THREADS_SUPPORT=YES)
  - gmake 3.79.1_3
  - libart_lgpl2 2.3.10
  - libaudiofile 0.2.3
  - libiconv 1.8_1
  - libxml2 2.4.24 (make WITHOUT_PYTHON=YES)
  - tiff 3.5.7
  - windowmaker 0.80.1

The exception is, that with the scenario above, you will have to DISable
OpenSSL support in gnustep-base - otherwise Apps/Tools will SIGSEGV when
trying to access URLs (http and ftp). I'm not sure whether this is a
general problem or is due to OpenSSL being compiled with gcc2.95.3...
