New issue 2126: [patch] correctly handle sys.platform for 'freebsd'

David Naylor:

With the EOL for FreeBSD 8 and newer versions of FreeBSD I have fixed all references to 'freebsd' to use sys.platform.startswith().  

This should not cause any issue as there is no special treatment by FreeBSD version and it makes to code future proof.  

I have classified this a a bug because lib_pypy/ctypes_support.py did not support 'freebsd10' and above.
