Hmmm... just did.  It doesn't work, although I may have it setup
incorrectly.  I installed the freebsd package from emul, but it doesn't
work.  A 'file' on the program reveals that it is an ELF executable - IIRC
there was a message about 1.5ALPHA2 not supporting ELF.

Am I out of luck?  Or did I potentially mess up the emul installation?
