SNIP re installing Tor on pfSense 2.03

I apologize for replying to such an old post, but it's what I found.

I've installed Tor from FreeBSD 8.1 on pfSense 2.03 based on
instructions at
It works well, but it's an ancient alpha release. I've tried the same
for Tor from FreeBSD 8.2 on pfSense 2.1 but Tor won't run. I haven't
bothered debugging because it's only a slightly less ancient alpha release.

I would like to build the latest Tor release for pfSense 2.1, but that
would be a stretch for me. What would the build environment look like?

Regarding Whonix, it would be outrageous if adrelanos used pfSense for
the gateway. I do appreciate his concerns about repository security.
However, pfSense updates discretely from a relatively small group of
developers, and I gather that new versions are thoroughly vetted before
