Renato Botelho, aka garga, and I picked up the gauntlet and put together the compat7x port for the upcoming release of FreeBSD 8.
We initially targeted a small audience, and gradually extended our scope. We are now looking for more testers. Those inclined to give it a try are encouraged to download the shar from http://people.freebsd.org/~tabthorpe/patches/misc-compat7x-7.2.702000.200908.shar

Any feedback is appreciated to garga@ and/or tabthorpe@
