Yep, one reason I thought OT would be best is I'm trying to move this
app to a Solaris 10 x86 system (don't ask).  Got all the GNU tools from

Anyway, the autoconf/make/configure scripts are "basic" code so figured
anyone that's done this stuff could help.  I don't feel like joining
YAUG for Solaris, but I will if I can't figure it out or find any help

Good call on stealing some stuff from the ports though!  The same
concepts to port to FBSD will prolly apply to Solaris - just different
paths, etc. - I HOPE!

Do you know that ntop 3.3.8 is available in ports as
Maybe you can use that? If you really need 3.3.10, try making a copy of
the  net/ntop directory, change the Makefile and distfile to refer to
3.3.10 and see if it compiles.

Note that the /usr/ports/net/ntop/files directory contains some patches
that are applied to the extracted source code to make it work. Maybe you
can borrow/adapt those if you really want to compile 3.3.10 yourself.
