Hi Mandree,

i'm trying to install on my FreeNAS 8.0 system (based on FreeBDS 8.2) the  dnsmasq package as described on this page :

where it says it needs libidn-1.19

but once installed (with pkg_add -r dnsmasq), i get the following :

[root at freenas /usr/local/sbin]# ./dnsmasq
/libexec/ Shared object "" not found, required by "dnsmasq"
[root at freenas /usr/local/sbin]# ls /usr/local/lib/libidn.  
[root at freenas /usr/local/sbin]# ls -l /usr/local/lib/libidn.*
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel    1013 Apr 11 03:52 /usr/local/lib/
lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel      12 Apr 11 03:52 /usr/local/lib/ ->
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  205750 Apr 11 03:52 /usr/local/lib/
[root at freenas /usr/local/sbin]# uname -a
FreeBSD freenas.local 8.2-RELEASE-p1 FreeBSD 8.2-RELEASE-p1 #2: Sat Apr 30 12:10:51 PDT 2011     jpaetzel at  i386

so nothing is corresponding...

therefore i have 2 questions :
- why isn't it linked with ? i'm thinking it would prevent the version issue with this lib.
- can this be fixed in ports ? (or will i need to install a full FreeBSD 8.2 and recompile it with the libidn version i need ?)

thanks in advance for your help,
best regards,
