There are two package managers and two compilers on FreeBSD:
- pkg_install is the historical one and pkgng meant to replace it
- heavily patched GCC 4.2 and Clang 3.[0-3] since 9.0R

As for future dependencies:
- PulseAudio as ALSA isn't stable on FreeBSD
- GStreamer should be enabled by default for any XP_UNIX
- libv4l brings v4l2 headers and bug 826985
