Add some FreeBSD logo material to the tree:
"FreeBSD.pfa" - the (postscript) font used to write "FreeBSD". "beastie.fig" - a 4.3 BSD style Daemon in vector graphic. "beastie.eps" - same converted to encapsulated postscript. "poster.sh" - an example how to use this stuff. "README" - the full story.

+logo "beastie" and graphic profile.

+ An Xfig(1) drawing of the 4.3 daemon.
+ This rendering of "beastie" was produced by Poul-Henning
+ Kamp <phk@FreeBSD.org> and is released under the "beerware"
+ license. In addition to beer Poul-Henning collects FreeBSD
+ merchandise ("nudge nudge, wink wink, he said knowingly.")
+ In difference from the rasterized renderings of beastie,
+ this vector-based beastie can be rendered in any size and
+ still look great.
+ Created from the beastie.fig with
+ fig2dev -L eps beastie.fig beastie.eps
+ patch < eps.patch
+ Add some comments about tweakables in the .eps file and set
+ the linecaps to round to improve visual appearance.
+ This is the font used for the "FreeBSD" text on the CDrom
+ products from BSDi / (Walnut Creek). It was originally
+ found on the on the WC/BSDi CDROM "Font Garden" under the
+ name "NRBWelshGillianBold", but the designer of the font,
+ Neil Beshoori
+ NRB Systems
+ + 44 1273 581366
+ besh@cix.compulink.co.uk
+ has donated a FreeBSD version of the font to us and allowed
+ us to include it in FreeBSD with no strings attached.
+ An example of how to use the stuff above. Outputs a simple
+ FreeBSD poster suitable for A4 paper.
+ If you want it in A3 format instead insert the line
+ 1.41 dup scale
+ above the "/mm" definition. You can scale it to any
+ other size in similar ways.
+If you want a GIF with transparent background:
+ fig2dev -L gif -g '#f0f0f0' -t '#f0f0f0' beastie.fig beastie.gif
+If you want a PNG file:
+ fig2dev -L png beastie.fig beastie.png
