While you received no replies to your first email, you received
multiple replies to the follow up email you sent on April 11. Those
replies included people saying that yes grub definitely does support
loading FreeBSD kernels, and that PC-BSD uses a FreeBSD kernel. In
addition, the grub manual includes an example entry for FreeBSD for a
manually written entry:
though I don't know if such an entry will work with PC-BSD or if it
needs some modification.

That is an odd assumption to make given that the replies on this list
said exactly the opposite. Did you miss those replies?
