So i look at the pari web page and then:

niobe% fetch
pari-2.5.0.tar.gz                             100% of 2650 kB 6412 kBps


niobe% ./Configure 
Configuring pari-2.5.0 (STABLE) 

Ok. Type "make install" when you are ready
Bye !

niobe% gmake gp
Making gp in Ofreebsd-i386

niobe% cd Ofreebsd-i386 
niobe% gp-dyn

Type ? for help, \q to quit.
Type ?12 for how to get moral (and possibly technical) support.

parisize = 4000000, primelimit = 500509

In other words everything works completely out of the box, without any
