Most of the 'bsd' qualified sections apply equally to FreeBSD, OpenBSD and NetBSD. Perhaps as high as 90%. For the exceptions, I would create a sub category for OpenBSD. IIRC, it used to be referred to as OS_VENDOR. Take a look at my diff that adds something like it here:

The new variable, VAR_OS_VENDOR lets you call out just the exceptions that are OpenBSD specific, when needed without having to make VAR_OS different for OpenBSD.

The user you are logged in under needs to be in the login class 'staff',  then you can either edit the staff class datasize default value in /etc/login.conf or change your datasize limit using 'ulimit -d' each time you login, before you build.
