this problem was caused by base and has been fixed on linux, NetBSD and FreeBSD.

a note:

I run FreeBSD on x86 (little endian) and NetBSD on sparc v8 (big endian). Maybe an endianness problem? Although linux/x86 is little endian too... I must check NetBSD/ppc (big endian).

I have not tested yet on the same box (FreeBSD) but will do so soon.
I have however built yesterday on NetBSD 2.0.2 and there it reports that I have 6.61MB free, while:

Filesystem  1K-blocks     Used     Avail Capacity  Mounted on
/dev/sd0a     4042476  2107956   1732396    54%    /
kernfs              1        1         0   100%    /kern

Not having FreeBSD, I've tested the changes on Darwin-8 and it seems to report the right value. Please, test it on FreeBSD.

on my FreeBSD box, GWorkspace reports 115.31 GB free space... although my HD is physically only 32GB big.

In any case:

> df -k

Filesystem  1K-blocks    Used    Avail Capacity  Mounted on
/dev/ad1s2a  19321882 2619720 15156412    15%    /
devfs               1       1        0   100%    /dev
