I was going to answer with
http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/articles/committers-guide/pref-license.html
however in a recent discussion on the -current list
(http://docs.freebsd.org/cgi/getmsg.cgi?fetch=163526+0+current/freebsd-current)
Brooks Davis <brooks@freebsd.org> said
"This file is outdated.  While this remains our prefered license, the
current
OpenBSD prefered license is the ISC licesed which is allowed by the license
policy we published to developers last year.  We should probably replace
this
page with that policy."

I'd ask for a copy of the current policy on freebsd-current@ if you dont
get any answers here.
