How is this related at all to the current discussion? Perhaps you should contact the developers that are trying to get Gentoo/FreeBSD going.

So are we going to start paying developers too? Having money for Gentoo should be to just help out where we can't get sponsors to do so. There is no way Gentoo will ever be able to pay all of its expenses. I'm not sure if that's what you are going for, but if so, I can't see how it will ever happen.
