Update the introduction section note, to add in the fact that DPDK is now
packaged in FreeBSD, i.e. available as a pre-built binary package, as well
as being in the ports collection for manual building.

Note: at this stage, DPDK is in the "latest" package snapshot, but has
not yet made it's way into the quarterly snapshot used by default by
stable releases. This is hopefully only a matter of time.
