quick update - ton's of progress being made on this porting effort.  i'm 
actually writing this from an intel i7 (skylake) system with accelerated 
graphics - so please get in on the fun!


there is still tons of work to do - especially in getting the intel GPU 
tools suite ported to FreeBSD.  there are lots of regression tests in 
the suite that we'd like to leverage...so hackers welcome.  there have 
to be some University students on summer vacation that want to pad their 
resumes on this list :)
