BGP is ignorant of underlying layer-2 technologies being used. BGP uses TCP as its transport protocol and as long as you have your IP reachability between BGP peers you are fine. You can have ATM, Ethernet, Frame-Relay, HDLC, etc. as your layer-2 and BGP would still run as long as you have configured IP to run properly over these layer-2 encapsulation mechanisms.
BGP is using TCP over IP unicast to transport BGP messages and updates. Therefore OSI Layer2 is not important for BGP at all. As long as you have IP connectivity between two BGP speakers - their IP addresses used for setting up the TCP session - Frame-Relay and any other Data Link protocol is good enough.
So there is no specific requirement with BGP and Frame-Relay, which is different to OSPF and other IGPs requiring special treatment of a NBMA environment.
