As others have said, you can do what you want to do with FreeBSD
licenced code.  The third party components in the base system that are
under different licences are in /usr/src/contrib and /usr/src/gnu, so
look there for potential problems.

And as Daniel has said, if you're not going to distribute the binaries
even the GPL code isn't a problem.  In any case, you should consult a
lawyer specializing in *software* copyright, not just any copyright
lawyer because depending on what you want to do, GPL can be very
complicated.
