They wouldn't be where they are today if portability was made a goal at the project outset. I still hope that one of the BSDs pick it up and make their own portable version because I think the systemd approach is superior to the old systems.
In particular, if anyone could demonstrate a way of doing this in a »minimally invasive« manner, the systemd developers might be brought around to supporting the required changes when the code has otherwise settled down. It makes a lot of sense to produce a Linux version of systemd first and then see what, if anything, can be done about portability.
On the other hand, it would mean somebody with a stake in BSD would have to do it, and that is unlikely to happen because of NIH.
