You're talking about x86 FreeBSD, right?
It should be reasonably straightforward. FreeBSD is reasonably close to
Linux in ways that matter to UML. The one major problem is FreeBSD's lack
of a PTRACE_SYSCALL equivalent, but that can be worked around.

Get a UML pool, build it and see what breaks. Then start fixing it.

There is a Windows port underway which is making good progress. So, I think
it loses on uniqueness.
FreeBSD would be a good choice, actually. It's close enough to Linux to
make it realistic as a part-time project. It's also fairly interesting
since combining it with UML/ppc would give you UML on OS/X. If it's too
easy and you finish way ahead of time, resurrecting UML/ppc and bringing
UML up on Darwin would make a nice extension of the project.
