"I run QGIS on FreeBSD these days, and have found that I need the
attached patch to get the grass shell and gps plugin to work.  The
grass shell patch is needed even to get the thing to compile.

The grass shell patch makes sure the right include files are brought
in to get at the PTY functions.

The gpsplugin patch changes the preprocessor symbol that selects what
style of ports to probe for, and adds a block of code that scans for
USB serial adapters."
