The previous two issues are now being addressed as part of task #15667, but another important issue that comes up in FreeBSD is that its shared libraries (and patching them when necessary) are like GNU/Linux ('.so' suffix), not macOS (with '.dylib' suffix).

So as done in task #15667, we now read the kernel name with 'uname -s' and to fix problems with shared libraries, we should use PatchELF (which is also available with FreeBSD, it doesn't use macOS's 'install_name_tool'!).

It would help if we test Maneage on FreeBSD also (with its default settings). So I just made Virtual Machine of FreeBSD 12.1 and tried building Maneage there. So far, I found these complications:

1. Since its default shell is TCSH, some things like '&>' don't work! I had to remove it in the check for 'nproc' in 'configure.sh'.

2. Its default Make implementation complains about the 'ifeq' conditionals we have in 'basic.mk'.
