Good to see FreeBSD build docs :)

Some things I noticed while reading...
- you had to document applying the glew update, just committed glew
1.5.8 patch, r35550 so this isn't needed.
- the build dir is different to the linux docs, its arbitrary but may
as well settle on one, how about "~/blender-svn/blender" for svn,
"~/blender-svn/build" for the out of source build?
- explanations about threaded "make -jN" are being duplicated about,
we should have a small wiki page for this which can be inlined, not
- On rebuilding calling cmake or ccmake shouldn't be needed since
explicitly listing source + headers in CMakeLists.txt, cmake will
automatically run if needed, if for some reason BSD needs cmake to
configure each time,  "ccmake ../blender" can be replaced with "cmake
../blender" so the user doesnt have to
configure via the UI.
