Thanks for the pointer and information. I've already started a cleanup 
and update of the supported versions.

Sure. Is there a test-plan to follow?

FreeBSD has - if i remind correctly - currently 2.2, 2.3, 3.0, 3.1, 3.3 
and 3.4 in the portstree. This means it compiles fine and there are user 
using pgpool-II :) For versions < 3.4 exists some minor patches to get 
it compiled.

If you have IPv6 on your site i can also give you access to a FreeBSD 
Server for testing purposes.
