Sure, but ..

I'm not able to compile it yet - more patches will be coming shortly.
The problems mostly stem from the fact that FreeBSD 4.x doesn't support
std::wstring, std::wstreambuf etc.
libs/serialization/src/basic_text_wiprimitive.cpp should test
BOOST_NO_STD_WSTREAMBUF before using std::wistream

The wchar.h header is present, but incomplete, so GCC on FreeBSD doesn't
define the _GLIBCXX_USE_WCHAR_T macro, disabling all wchar_t support in
the C++ library.

The FreeBSD box is at work, so I can't do any testing during the day
because I have other things to do. I'll try to get some patches
prepared, and run the tests if possible, later this evening.
