FreeBSD bmake and meta mode

The Junos "meta mode" build is the coolest thing since sliced bread. The FreeBSD projects/bmake branch provides a proof of concept for the more general use of this technology.

The latest release of FreeBSD uses bmake by default, a prerequisite for the "meta mode" build. This talk will cover the adoption of bmake and how the projects/bmake branch differs from traditional FreeBSD build.
