I usually compile things from ports. You will find BitchX in /usr/ports/irc/bitchx. If you want to try compiling it, do this (as root): cd /usr/ports/irc/bitchx make install distclean -Will > -----Original Message----- > From: Ian Todd [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] > Sent: Saturday, June 21, 2003 1:56 PM > To: [EMAIL PROTECTED] > Subject: packages > > > Hi > > I am a newbie to freebsd.
