Dynagen in FreeBSD

After ports unfreeze, I do some directory ports walking ( wanna analogy it as blogwalking 🙂 ), find dynagen and dynamips ports. I thought dynagen not available in FreeBSD but I’m wrong 🙂

su-2.05b# whereis dynamips

dynamips: /usr/ports/emulators/dynamips

su-2.05b# whereis dynagen

dynagen: /usr/ports/emulators/dynagen

su-2.05b# ls /usr/ports/emulators | grep dyna


wow, try dynagen first 🙂

su-2.05b# cd /usr/ports/emulators/dynagen/

See version

Version 0.9, no time for installation but prepare the file is OK

su-2.05b# make fetch

On FreeBSD before 6.2 ports system unfortunately can not set default X11BASE by itself so please help it a bit by setting X11BASE=${LOCALBASE} in make.conf.
On the other hand, if you do wish to use non-default X11BASE, please set variable USE_NONDEFAULT_X11BASE.
*** Error code 1

Sigh, this box is 4.11 not 6.2, try add more option in ‘make’

su-2.05b# make USE_NONDEFAULT_X11BASE=1 fetch

ready to install, make install clean

P.S : I should learn about how to modifiy ports, dynagen has reach 0.9.2 but ports still 0.9 🙂
