According to rtprio(1) manpage, users can set realtime priority if
sysctl variable security.bsd.unprivileged_idprio is set to non-zero.

I don't have a FreeBSD system to test this on, but it is of interest
to me. FreeBSD is looking increasingly attractive as Linux (which
I've used for pro audio work for 10+ years) acquires more and more
desktop-related baggage which requires increasing amounts of effort
to disable or remove.
