I'm trying to install the Staden package on some FreeBSD machines and i wonder: do I compile fron sourch or use the precompiled Linux binarys. I have successfully installed it on different Linux systems before, but compile it on FreeBSD don't seem to be all that easy.
What do you recomend?
I have compiled in on FreeBSD6.2. You should use the thirdparty packages which are supplied with staden.
If you are interested, I could provide you the tarball with all changes, which did compile on my system. It is not very cleanly done so I can't promise it will compile on your system.
Yes please, I would be very interested in that. I'll send you an E-mail. Do you have any documentation over your changes? It could be useful for debugging eventual compilation failure. And how will the thirdparty packages work with the ports already installed?
Since BSD underpins Mac OS X, and I'd like to try and get 1.7 running under the latter OS, can you please email the instructions to the list. As a matter of interest, has anyone got 1.7 to run under OS X?

Well, I did'nt get it to work. But the linux-bin files works fine after installing some additional lib's.
