Created attachment 227208 [details]

I ported spacefm to FreeBSD without usage of HAL, and with FLAVORS support for
both gtk2 or gtk3.  Most functionality works, except for the procfs paths,
which is disabled for now, since pointing it to linprocfs causes a core dump.

Most of the linuxisms of the file manager have been worked around, thanks in no
small part to the FreeBSD inotify interface, as well as patches to the oddly
written configure script.

At some point, I may fix the proc filesystem support to work on regular /proc
instead of /compat/linux/proc (or write the equivalent FreeBSD system calls),
but in spite of this missing features, this file manager appears to be working,
and even now, may be appealing to Linux users on the fence about FreeBSD.

At some point, I would like to improve its VFS support.
