I've been using it on FreeBSD -current (on i386) for a while now too,
and it does indeed rock :-)
One annoyance is that the config file format changed. When I
portugprade'd it it make no mention of that via pkg-message, so I had a
dead proxy for a few days until I noticed it (I only use tor
sporadically, the slowness is enough to make me prefer a direct
connection most of the time).
It was hilarious the first time I surfed to Google with Tor -- the code
that detects country of original based on IP address (from Akamai, I
suspect) assumed I was in Germany and presented Google to me in German.
Good fun :-)
