just installed Boinc on my FreeBSD machine today.
(source downloaded from http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/ports.cgi?query=boinc-client&stype=all)

I got this (last two lines) in the [Message] Tab
"Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks"
"Suspending network activity - time of day"

Anyways, i will leave my internet connection on whenever possible.
hopefully there will be new task coming into my machine.

I got this message in the [message] tab
Your app_info.xml file doesn't have a usable version of Astropulse v505.

so, i downloaded boinc-astropulse-5.06_2 from
http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/ports.cgi?query=astropulse&stype=all&sektion=all
and then
make install clean

but un-success....

my system is freeBSD 8.2 with gnome

Standard apps don't need an app_info. If you aremanually installing optimized apps and an app_info you'll need to put the app and app_info in your BOINCsetiathome folder(whereever you've installed BOINC

Just installed FreeBSD on my another machine.
This time i went into /usr/ports/astro/boinc-astropulse
and
make install clean

It successfully installed boinc-astropulse
but when i start the programme, i got messages
"Your app_info.xml file doesn't have a usable version of SETI@home Enhanced."

and

"Sending scheduler request: To fetch work. Requesting 129600 seconds of work, reporting 0 completed tasks
Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks
Message from server: No tasks sent."

should I go into the folder
/usr/ports/astro/boinc-setiathome-enhanced and
make install clean ?

SETI@home currently doesn't seem to send out AstroPulse tasks, though there are many of them in the "ready to send" queue.

To avoid the message "Your app_info.xml file doesn't have a usable version of SETI@home Enhanced," you'll have to find a usable version of SETI@home Enhanced, download it and add it to your app_info.xml file. ;-)

yeah, so I went into folder
/usr/ports/astro/boinc-setiathome-enhanced and
make install clean

It successfully installed setiathome-enhanced
and when I start boinc, the programme successfully downloaded 4 tasks.
So i guess, my freeBSD machine is now installed with both astropulse and
setiathome-enhanced.
