It looks to me like you haven't compiled libdshconfig per the instructions here:


Or, it can't find libdshconfig (where it installs by default depends on the
behavior of the libdshconfig build), in which case you should set CFLAGS
and LDFLAGS to help it find libdshconfig.

Whether it compiles cleanly/runs properly on a modern FreeBSD is
questionable, since this code hasn't been touched since 2005. But your
compile error does not appear to be a problem with FreeBSD.
