Even for non-standard location installs, I recommend using the ports instead of building yourself, but if you really want to do it by hand, expect to need to know a bit more about what you're doing. In this case, I suspect you need to use gmake instead of (the native) make. -- Lowell Gilbert, embedded/networking software engineer, Boston area http://be-well.ilk.org/~lowell/ _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
