Distribution distribution?

The introduction text:

PC-BSD is a FreeBSD distribution with lots of customisations focussed on the desktop user.


With expansion: Free Berkeley Software Distribution distribution.

Wouldn't "FreeBSD variant", "FreeBSD extension" or "distribution based upon the FreeBSD operating system" be better, in terms of technical correctness? I'm aware of the fact that the phrasing "FreeBSD distribution" is good to understand, but it reads a bit strange...
