I'm sorry to day that it still will not build on V5. The error clearly
indicates a compiler problem and I will open a new PR on it shortly. It
fails to parse a line from a header file that is part of gcc 2.95, itself.

You can install the package for V4 and it seems to work properly. This
assumes that you have COMPAT_FREEBSD4 in your kernel configuration.

The REAL solution will only come when RIPE fixes the IRRToolSet to build
with g++ V3. I have spoken with them, but it does not seem to be a high
priority. Their main goal is to get all of the tools ported to support
IPv6 and the latest generation of RPSL. Some already have been completed
in 4.8, but I suspect that gcc V3 will be quite a while in coming.
