We can't ship unusable software in Jessie. As per -release mandate kfreebsd-*
is no exception anymore.

It's already been stablished that GDM3 is unportable, and why. If you can't
find a way to make gnome-terminal work without GDM3, then please make it
Linux-only until you can.

I'm afraid you can't rely on porter teams to fix this. gnome-terminal dependency
on GDM3 has nothing to do with porting.
