There are enough other changes in Gentoo/FreeBSD that would stop from being 
able to use binaries built on Gentoo/FreeBSD on "vanilla" FreeBSD, more or 
less like building on Debian stops you from using (most) binaries on SuSE. 
But as long as they don't set ./configure --host parameter explicitly, it 
should be all fine, beside the soname of the NEEDED entries, which is 
actually, in my opinion, a good thing.

But please also note that this is _not_ a GNU/FreeBSD project :)
