Have you forwarded X over SSH using the -X switch? This will work if you've got the following in your /etc/ssh/sshd_config file:
Code:
X11Forwarding yes
If you've got that set, you can send IDLE over ssh to your Mac. But, you're right - this isn't going to work if IDLE doesn't already work on your FreeBSD box which will likely pull in X as a dependency.

(This is great timing - I'm in the process of learning FreeBSD myself so it's nice to see some questions that push my thinking).
