I'm one of the people involved in https://wiki.debian.org/ReproducibleBuilds
and have set up https://reproducible.debian.net which continously tests all
packages in the Debian archive for build reproducibility (so far on amd64
For those who don't know, reproducible builds enable everyone to independently
verify that a given binary comes from specific source. This also allows to
indirectly verify that one's build system has not been tempered with - and
more. Please check the first URL of this mail for "the rest of the story".
And then someone pointed me to https://wiki.freebsd.org/ReproducibleBuilds
- kudos for how far you already!(!!)
So now I would like to build freebsd myself, twice, and compare the results
and show these results as in
https://reproducible.debian.net/rb-pkg/unstable/amd64/gcc-4.9.html - and then
quite probably set up a jenkins job on jenkins.debian.net and do this every
Here's the catch: I have basically no clue about freebsd - and I want to
build on Debian linux (on amd64) in a chroot. (And, it will need you people to
look at the results and eventually fix them!) ;-)
So maybe can you help me with my next step. I've found the github freebsd
repo and cloned it, how to proceed further now?
$ make buildworld
Makefile:137: *** missing separator. Stop.
in the master branch of git://github.com/freebsd/freebsd wasn't right.. :/ ;)
Thanks for any help and pointers! I've tried to find documentation on this but
had no luck so I figured I could just ask...
