I've uploaded a new version of the FreeBSD port for netatalk 2.1.1, available at


A new build option WITH_APPLETALK (default: off) will build all AppleTalk-related programs, utilities, man pages, etc. By default, nothing that requires AppleTalk is built and installed; afpd is built without support for DDP.

When building with PAM support, a suitable pam config file will be installed to $PREFIX/etc/pam.d/netatalk.

Command line options for the various daemons are now configured through the standard rc.conf mechanism (afpd_flags, atalkd_flags, etc.) instead of through $PREFIX/etc/netatalk.conf.  The main netatalk_enable knob is gone.  To run the file server successfully, you should set afpd_enable="YES" and cnid_metad_enable="YES" in /etc/rc.conf.

All five port config options compile successfully on FreeBSD 8.1-PRERELEASE, but I have only tested afpd with and without PAM; Kerberos, AppleTalk and Timelord support are untested.
