Thank you all!

Yes; I had known that synopsis required g++ 3 or higher (I was unable 
to download gcc  3.2 but did build 3.1)

I shall indeed try the ports/patches as  recommended by you helpful 
people and will assuredly send all information back to the developer. 
He seems to be quite willing to add ifdef's and installation notes as 
appropriate and appeared most interested in having his package build 
for FreeBSD (as am I).

Thank you again!
