First of all.
I have just read the thread you started on the openbsd mailing list
misc at . Damn it! I am scared.... there a couple of nasty emails in 
there. I consider this reply from Theo especially unnecessary:

This is an openbsd list.  please honour that.

And that leads me to what I really wanted to tell you. Perhaps it is 
not going to help you but.... Have you considered NetBSD? I warranty,
at least, that you won't get such a nasty emails from the mailing

The idea of using FreeBSD4.11 is very interesting also. I see your
concerns about the eventual dead of 4.X. I would consider
dragonfly, which it is mainly based on 4.X FreeBSD.
