systeminstall: add support for FreeBSD

Follow the general idea of the Debian systeminstall backend.

The technology level is a bit lower here, in two ways:

 - there is only one mapping, since there is only one FreeBSD pkg
   collection at a given time

 - there is no 'contents' file as on Debian, so the update script must
   be run on a FreeBSD system which has all of the relevant packages
Comment 2 Allison Karlitskaya (desrt) 2015-01-04 01:56:29 UTC
two problems found so far:

 - 'automake' does not find the correct package, but finds 'automake-wrapper'
   instead which is something like debian alternatives for various automake

 - 'make' is BSD make here; we want 'gmake'.  See also bug 742292.
