In recent linux distributions yes.

Even better would be to get the freebsd support merged into libusbx.
/me suspects the reason why freebsd has its own implementation is
basically the same why the libusbx exists in the first place: unfriendly
So if you tried + failed to merge the freebsd bits to libusb in the past
it is worth trying again to get them into libusbx, then switch over
freebsd to libusbx too.
