Hi list,

Sorry for the cross-posting. I am sure I can get help from this list.

I am trying to compile coova-chilli on FreeBSD 6.x or 7.x using an
unofficial port that I stumbled upon from http://www.geeklan.co.uk/?p=106
One has to extract the port into ports/net-mgmt and build from there.

Now I am trying to install it on FreeBSD 7.1-PRE and the build fails with
the following:

email# make

Please report the problem to venture37 at geeklan.co.uk [maintainer] and attach
the "/usr/ports/net-mgmt/coova-chilli/work/coova-chilli-1.0.12/config.log"
including the output of the failure of your make command. Also, it might be
a good idea to provide an overview of all packages installed on your system
(e.g. an `ls /var/db/pkg`).
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/net-mgmt/coova-chilli.

The config.log is available here:

Will really appreciate your help in resolving the cause of the failure.
