FreeBSD 5.1/5.2 boot perfectly. I did not yet try to boot 4.8/4.9.
What I did was to try to boot the daily snapshot from CD. The results were
as follows. If these are bugs of features is left for you to find out :-)
The first two things  I noticed were:
1. the bootstrap loader stills says FreeBSD
2. the snapshot apparently does not include an ACPI module, as I get the
following warning:
    "ACPI autoload failed - no such file or directory"
Then, eventually it hangs during the boot process. At the following point:
    ppi0: <Parallel I/O> on ppbus0
    installed MI handler for int7
This happens with ACPI, without ACPI and in single user mode. 
same here, try "set hw.ata.ata_dma=0" in the boot loader. worked for me.
DMA is not working in the ata driver for the 645dx chipset.
