Ok, at last I got the hands to FreeBSD installation and that Matlab issue.

[root@amandine matlab]# /home/xeon/Matlab\ Linux\ 2006a/CD1/install -glnx86
expr: illegal option -- r
usage: expr [-e] expression
/home/xeon/Matlab Linux 2006a/CD1/install: line 197: [: -ne: unary operator expected
usage: dirname string
expr: illegal option -- r
usage: expr [-e] expression
/tmp/40023tmwinstall/install: line 197: [: -ne: unary operator expected
    Usage: install -h | [-<arch>] [-debug] [ [-t] | [-x] ]

      -h      Help. Show command usage.

      -<arch> Assume this architecture when installing.
              You must specify a valid MATLAB arch (e.g. sol2, glnx86)

      -debug  Turn on debugging messages.

      -t      Use terminal setup.

      -x      Use X Window setup. (Default)

The neighboorhood of offending lines are like this:
# Check for link portably
	    if [ `expr "$lscmd" : '.*->.*'` -ne 0 ]; then
	        filename=`echo "$lscmd" | awk '{ print $NF }'`
And.. may be it's better to post somehow entire script? It has more than 1200 lines. May be there is a place devoted to this?

That's it... if somebody can point out the cause of error and help to get the Matlab working, I would not hesitate to buy the beer (I don't drink, but this doesn't matter).
