I'm new to FreeBSD, but have been looking at 11.0 Alpha 4 initially,
with the aim of getting a vnc based gui solution working. Via a
rather tortuous route, have over 400 packages built, various show
stoppers, pages of warnings etc along the way. Machine is a Sun

Anyway, on checking notes, that .S file is a symbolic link to a
file that doesn't exist, so you need to download the package
source from:-


Untar that into a separate directory, delete the symbolic
link, then copy / replace it with the file from the download
directory. If you then do a make clean then make install, it
should work.

I plan to write up the notes, but am new to all this and know
nothing at this stage about FreeBSD dev culture and processes
