SQL?  Hm.  There is one package available freely, mSQL, that does a 
limited set of SQL commands.  I'm currently working with it's C API to 
write an IP number database for my job at the Universtiy.  It has been 
ported to FreeBSD and works great.

It definitely doesn't handle some of the things you mention, but could be implemented.  I
suppose you could do logging with the query debug function. :-)  You 
could pick up a commercial solution (ORACLE, etc.) that could be ported.   

And, FreeBSD uses a different version number than BSD does.  We're at 
2.1-RELEASE now, available over the Net at ftp.freebsd.org in 
/pub/FreeBSD or on CDROM from Walnut Creek (1-800-786-9907) for $39.95.  

Hope this helps...
