Well no, I am not really a 'BSD' user, but if samba 4 works on the 
genuine FreeBSD, but doesn't work on something that is based on Freebsd, 
this to me means that there must be something wrong with the samba 4 
package on pfsense.

Having said that, I fail to see why the OP is trying to install an AD DC 
on something that is meant to be a firewall device (I googled pfsense), 
but it's his machine, he can do as he pleases.
