There are two cases.
(1) If libreboot is working on a PC, there should be no 
    difficulty installing and using Native Oberon.  
(2) According to my understanding, the FPGA based system 
    doesn't have a BIOS comparable to a PC.  The boot 
    process is rather simple and there is no question of 
    malicious activity as might happen in a PC when booting.
For further details see

I read that page but have not studied the subject in depth.  
With present understanding I'd claim that each of the systems, 
Native Oberon and FPGA, is "libre".
