Yeah, what the heck is up with that?! I've been using MozillaFirebird-i686-pc-linux-gnu.tar.gz running under linux-compat (works with linux_base-7) on FreeBSD so far.

Is it actually compiled with the same options? There must be some good reason why it's five meg bigger.

Anyone compiling their own build for FreeBSD? How big is the resulting tarball you get?
