I don't have the best install method : 

Personnaly (maybe it's stupid method but it's work) :

        1/ I've get a Linux box (with a officila support by MapleSoft, like
        Fedora or something like that).

        2/ I install the Maple on this Linux Box on something like

        You can install or not install flexlm depend what's kind of
        licensce  you have.

        3/ If you must install flexlm install it

        4/ Make 

                tar cvf maple.tar /usr/local/maple-8

        copy this tar file on your freebsd box

        untar it in /usr/local (or where you want)

        Modify the file


        [root]$ diff maple.system.type maple.system.type.orig 
        <         MAPLE_BIN="bin.IBM_INTEL_LINUX"
        >         MAPLE_BIN="FAIL"

        Do exactly same thing for flexlm if you need.


NB: Don't buy Maple-10, it's not working on 5.2/5.4/6.1
