I cannot install this version of setiathome. The setup script _autosetup
fails for make, m4 and pkg-config.
I took a peek in the file, and the way it checks for version seems to be at
fault. It runs each command with the flag --version
which is not a correct flag for neither make or m4. The flag is correct for
pkg-config, but the interpreter misses it somehow.

I have the latest version of everything installed, so I don't see why it
should not work.. Don't know how to get the version of make,
but m4 is 1.4.11,1, and pkg-config is 0.23.

That's as far as i get... below is the last part of the "make install"


BOINC_DIR="/usr/local" SHELL=/bin/sh CONFIG_SHELL=/bin/sh MAKE=gmake
 ./configure --disable-static-client
--with-boinc-platform=i386-portbld-freebsd --build=i386-portbld-freebsd

Couldn't find a new-enough version of 'pkg-config', please install one!
