https://github.com/dotnet/corefx/issues/24292
- FreeBSD: System.Console is not working right:
https://github.com/dotnet/corefx/issues/24259

> I was finally able to run corefx tests on FreeBSD 11.0 (without outerloop
tests)
> Total passed: 144208
> Total failed: 2622
> Total skipped 207

> I will update dotnet/corefx/wiki/Building-.NET-Core--2.x-on-FreeBSD with
instructions.

up-for-grab.
