I've seen JB & Lars's threads below on dia-list
mailinglist.(I'm not on it so if anyone has solution,
please cc: me directly).

And, on my FreeBsd box I tried to install dia 0.94
from source and ran into the same problem JD

I went to http://www.gnome.org/projects/dia/ for
updates/patch and didn't find a way to make the dia
installation work.

Please point me to the fix/patch and how I may apply
it as I'm pretty newbie on FreeBSD.  I've used dia on
linux preinstalled and since my workstation don't have
any diagram tool, I was trying to download it.

Thanks in advance.

Hello !
I've read the message at the link below:
The fact is that I'm running in the very same problem
as reported at
that time:

make: don't know how to make UML.sheet. Stop
*** Error code 1

        This occurs when I try to compile dia 0.93.
The command "configure" is executed with only a little
error, in the attached configure_errors.log file. But
the "make" is more problematic, with the fatal error

That configure error is very unlikely to have anything
to do with the
fatal error.  Can you check the sheets/Makefile and
see if it contains

    %.sheet: %.sheet.in $(INTLTOOL_MERGE) $(wildcard
$(top_srcdir)/po/*.po) $(INTLTOOL_MERGE)
$(top_srcdir)/po $< $@ -x -u \
    -c $(top_srcdir)/po/.intltool-merge-cache

    And are you using Gnu make?

Thanks for your quick answer, but I do have the above
string in my sheets/Makefile, and yes I'm using gcc,
as reported below (it is the tail of the "configure"
Anyway, any idea ?
Thanks again.
