Will the bsd boot loader pickup the Linux partitions?
It should - it did the last time I dual booted.

Any tricks to getting Linux to pull the bsd partitions into grub?

You will need the UFS file system support in grub, not many distros have it.
Edit: Then, I think, you can 'chainload' it. (It's been some time since I dual booted any of my machines.)
