To try to get pkgsrc working on your system, please try the following
as root:
# ./bootstrap
[ --workdir <workdir> ]
[ --prefix <prefix> ]
[ --pkgdbdir <pkgdbdir> ]
[ --sysconfdir <sysconfdir> ]
[ --ignore-case-check ]
[ --ignore-user-check ]
[ --preserve-path ]
[ --help ]
The defaults for the arguments are as follows:
--prefix /usr/pkg
--pkgdbdir /var/db/pkg
--sysconfdir /usr/pkg/etc
--workdir work
It is perfectly acceptable to place 'pkgdbdir' under 'prefix'.
The working directory will be created if it doesn't exist and has to be
writable by the user executing ./bootstrap.
Make sure that you have a working C compiler and make(1) binary in
your path. Please note that on some systems (IRIX and SunOS, for example),
the bootstrap script will look into a number of common directories for
alternative implementations of some tools. If they are found, these
directories will be prepended to the PATH variable, unless the
'--preserve-path' flag is given.
See for
more information about bootstrapping and using pkgsrc.
We'd be very interested in hearing of any successes or failures on
"unknown" (to us) systems.
