Fastd on FreeBSD

Fastd is nice and small secure tunneling daemon. A bit like OpenVPN, if you wish, but geared toward small devices, simpler in its design and in some ways more generic.

There was a FreeBSD port, but it has been marked as broken. The fix, however, is very simple, if you accept to get rid of AES128 and instead use the SALSA stream cipher:

cmake -DWITH_CIPHER_AES128_CTR=FALSE CMakeLists.txt
make
make install
