gdal is in ports. All you need to do is update your ports tree, and then: # cd /usr/ports/graphics/gdal # make install although FreeBSD 4.4 is rather elderly, and not guarranteed to work with the latest ports. As for whether the "GNU compiler" was intalled: most of the compiler tool chain uses GNU programs (gcc, gas etc). One thing that isn't GNU-ish is the make program (as you might expect, we use Berkeley make), but make isn't itself a compiler, although it will run any number of them for you... If you've installed GNU make from ports, the binary will be called 'gmake'. If you installed it by compiling manually, it's probably ended up called /usr/local/bin/make. Type: % which make to find out which one you are running and adjust your $PATH if it's not the one you want.
