FreeBSD on the Orange Pi

FreeBSD sources

As of May, 2018, the latest production release of FreeBSD is 11.1. Happily, FreeBSD seems to be using Git and Github, unlike NetBSD which is still using CVS. The project (base system) migrated from CVS to SVN in 2008 So, try something like this. This is big (it looks like about 1G).
git clone
cd freebsd
make clean
Interesting things are in:

Bootable images

They say, "For embedded devices and single-board computers (SBC) such as the Raspberry Pi, Beagle Bone Black, Panda Board, and Zed Board, use the armv6 SD card image which supports ARMv6 and ARMv7 processors."
