the linux binaries will probably work on many of the *BSD platforms
that have linux compatibility functionality.  condor_compile probably
won't work, so you won't get checkpointing and remote system calls,
but everything else might work just fine.  no, we don't maintain our
own *BSD boxes (yet) and test it ourselves, which is why we don't
officially claim to support these platforms, but we've heard of some
anecdotal evidence that things Just Work(tm).  we are planning to
start maintaining some *BSD test machines and to more officially
support those platforms, especially since we're supporting OSX now,
and that's pretty much pure-BSD from Condor's perspective.

or, like you did, you can just try the linux binaries and it'll
probably do at least as much as SGE or SPBS (condor without
checkpointing)... ;) 

good luck,
