hrmmm ugh fldigi-2.10 runs fine here on i386 FreeBSD 7.0. What architecture
are you on? Does it happen to be amd64? I'll need to see a gdb bt if you

This problem is actually in devel/gio-fam-backend

I have duplicated the problem.

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lgio-2.0
gmake: *** [] Error 1
*** Error code 2

But I am not sure how this could happen. Are your ports up to date?

Basically gio-fam-backend has a dependancy on /usr/ports/devel/glib20
or should have. Unless glib20 port is installed first, libgiofam will fail.
I've only taken a quick cursory look, but it appears this might be
related to a commit to /usr/ports/Mk/

In the meantime, cd /usr/ports/devel/glib20;make install
then return to your fldigi build.

Yes, I remember your comment about that. I'll look at it again, thanks.
