pcbsd bug search yielded no such tickets, but tpo and
freebsd do have tickets, there may be other tickets out
there you can find and add their links in to this thread.
Try working up some new content to reopen 178281
and inquiry to freebsd lists/forum for help.

- Torbrowser 3.x doesn't work in freebsd 9+
- Request for a Native Torbrowser Port

Long term, looking at the porting issues may be better
than relying on linux libs, however FF and deterministic
are some more initial work.


But as a hack you may be able to build/find the needed glibc on
linux and copy them in for use by the freebsd 10.1 linux module.
Note going forward that f10 has been deprecated in favor of c6.


FreeBSD linux kernel module does not yet support 64bit.
For reference, 32bit:
