FreeBSD and DragonFly BSD have diverged quite a lot.
To run freeBSD-6 binaries on DF you would need some
kind of ABI layer, similar to the linux ABI.  It is
definitely non-trivial, because there are some major
infrastructural differences.

If you need to run a closed-source software that is
available for FreeBSD 6 and Linux, it's probably much
easier to try to get the Linux binary running.
