Surely there is an emacs distribution for BSD.  There certainly was one
in pre-Solaris days for Sun Microsystems and also for Vaxen.

I don't know whether Alexei Kryukov's Thessalonica (for OpenOffice.org)
covers all that is needed for Serbian (in academic departments, at least,
great Russians get very snooty about things like the composite soft n 
but Thessalonica is a fine way to enter non-Latin text and, since it is a
uno-package, it is programmable and extendable.  I was able to work up
an input protocol based on post-positive accentuation (Unicode and Ibycus)
in about 12 hours total immediately after first discovering the package.
