FreeBSD Raspberry Pi minimal image

Hi, I see on the repositories that only one 12.0-STABLE .img for RPI3 exists, and it's > 2Gb.

The .img includes Mate, anyway, I need only a minimal image because I want my Pi only for firewalling and routing.

Does anyone know whether a minimal image exists?

Thanks, regards

The github web page tells that only RaspberryPi and RaspberryPi 2 are supported, I would like to buy a RaspberryPi 3

Thanks anyway

lucdig Could you link to the image you wanted to use? I can't find an official image of FreeBSD 12 for RPI3 that includes mate.
In the official 12-RELEASE image there are no packages included but I did see there's quite a big chunk of data (almost 1 Gb) in "/usr/lib/debug/".
I'm pretty sure you could create a smaller image if you wanted to by removing unnecessary stuff, but all-in-all debug symbols can be useful to have.

I'm going to correct myself here for future reference, after reading this in another thread:
