You can find some instructions on how to get it running here: http://sharp.dimens.io/en/stable/install/
You'll also need to install node8 (node10 doesn't work), npm-node8, egl and gcc5 via pkg install to successfully run the compilation of vips. Secondly you might need to add some symlinks for python (link it to python2.7; better link all the other python executables as well) and vips8 (link it to vips-8.7 in /usr/local/bin/. If the vips compilation fails in the end (can take hours) then it might still be sufficiently working for nodeBB, give it a try!
sharp itself is the package which is breaking the ./nodeBB start on FreeBSD (in my case v11.2). If you didn't fix the sharp installation before running ./nodeBB setup you might need to run npm install sharp in the nodeBB installation folder.

@azeus I'm also about to upgrade from 1.4.4. to 1.5.0. What steps did you take to install? I'm kind of nervous!
$ cd /nodebb_Home
$ git fetch
$ git checkout v1.5.x
$ ./nodebb upgrade
And of course backup before
Worked perfectly! Thank you!
