Would it be possible to update the biber package for freebsd? Well, I can only install in TL what is provided by biber. https://sourceforge.net/projects/biblatex-biber/files/biblatex-biber/current/binaries/FreeBSD/ says "This folder has no files.". I don't know who compiles the freebsd biber binaries. I will write Phil Kime. --sorry, karl.
