The problem on kFreeBSD isn't kFreeBSD specific at all. Debian on Linux 
should have this problem, too, but maybe we got lucky there.

This patch fixed it awhile ago...


...and will be in the 2.0.1 release.

(I should have realized the issue if I read more carefully...if you 
launched lincity-ng with an absolute path, it worked, and if you 
launched it from the $PATH variable, it failed.)

kFreeBSD has /proc/self/exe, so we try to favor that over parsing $PATH, 
but we screwed up the call to readlink() in the 2.0.0 release, so it got 
incorrect information, and then failed.

This is confirmed fixed upstream. You can apply that patch to the 2.0.0 
package or wait for 2.0.1.

Thanks for your patience on the issue.
