Some notes about the status of GNOME 3 in the BSD world:

AFAIK, GNOME 3 is not yet ready in BSD systems. My limited 
understanding is that GNOME uses specific Linux technologies, so it 
needs some modifications for using native technologies of other systems 
(or someone who port those Linux technologies to those systems)

The FreeBSD GNOME team is working in a port of GNOME 3.4. it will 
be push to merge _after_ FreeBSD 9.1 is released (FreeBSD 9.1 
release  annoucement will be on 17th August 2012), though they don't
have a date for the release of the GNOME 3.4 port (that will be more 
a beta version than a stable version because they are a small team to
do the testing)

When FreeBSD releases the GNOME 3 port,  it will be added to 

By now, people who want to run GNOME 3, have to compile themselves.

About OpenBSD, OpenBSD 5.1 was released in May, but it only
supports the GNOME 3 fallback mode.
