Cool, and of course you could always install a plain jane PCI card NIC in the machine that would be sure to work with FreeBSD.

That's in fact what I do... I really hate my onboard Marvel Yukon2... works like crap in Linux and I don't even think FreeBSD has a driver for it. It's disabled and forgotten and I just use an ordinary realtek 8139 based NIC that works in all my OSes.
