I got the latest version [1] compiling for FreeBSD with a bit of fiddling and thought I would record what I did here for reference:

1. FreeBSD uses PMake rather than GNU Make. Part of the compilation fails with PMake. To change to GNU Make perform the following steps:

    a) Download and install GNU Make: pkg install gmake-4.2.1_1.

    b) cd /usr/bin

    c) mv make make.backup (in case you need to change back)

    d) create a symbolic link: ln -s /usr/local/bin/gmake make

1. Add the following line to gnucap\lib\

    #include <stdio.h>

I am note sure how the configure script could work on any system without this change as readline.h references a FILE* but does not include stdio.

2. run the configure script.

3. In gnucap/lib/Make2 change -ldl to -lc as on FreeBSD, libdl is part of libc.

4. run make
