I have not been actively doing any development lately, but I did 
a bunch of development pre 1.0 to ensure the PostgreSQL and MySQL 
had the same functionality.

The maintainer for the FreeBSD port is quite good, and I have not 
had any problems with the port in the past.

There have been an enormous amount of posts on this topic, and it 
has been answered a hundred times. The information is out there
there is also sample data that I have posted a number of times.

It would help if the original poster, let us know what version 
of FreeBSD he was using. He  mentions Mandrake 10.2 but as far 
as I know they don't have a FreeBSD distribution. ;^)

I was planning on doing some more testing soon, I will try to 
get to it today.
