Description:Trying to compile HEAD on Freebsd 5.4 is broken, because Freebsd (and I think Solaris also) do not have strndup().  Attached is a patch which reverts to using strdup().  I don't see any real difference in using strndup() versus strdup() in this particular case, but not being a C programmer I could easily be missing something.

May be as follow:

#if defined(__FreeBSD__)
        buf = strdup((char *)f->data);  /* dup and break */
        buf = strndup((char *)f->data, f->datalen);     /* dup and break */

The point of using strndup there is that the f->data array may not be null-terminated, so we need to copy only the relevant portion of the array. Whatever solution we use must continue to provide the same semantics.

Try installing devel/libstrfunc out of the ports tree and add an additional
#include <strfunc.h> into the source file instead.  You'll also need to add -lstrfunc into the Makefile in the LIBS section.

That should be sufficient to get strndup() on FreeBSD.

Patch uploaded which should be sufficient for FreeBSD.

Thanks :)

The patch almost works, but not quite.  The strfunc library is installed in /usr/local/lib, so..

+LIBS+=-lcrypto -lstrfunc

should be...

+LIBS+=-lcrypto -lstrfunc -L$(CROSS_COMPILE_TARGET)/usr/local/lib

And also..

+#ifndef __STRFUNC_H__

should be

+#ifndef STRFUNC_H

Uploaded additional patch.  Note that libstrfunc changed their header file define in the last major release.

Should apply cleanly over the version already in CVS.

By: Malcolm Davenport (mdavenport) 2005-07-09 08:11:51

Changes made in CVS.  Okay to resolve?

By: Tilghman Lesher (tilghman) 2005-07-09 08:16:00

It appears you lost a closing parenthesis in channel.c

By: Malcolm Davenport (mdavenport) 2005-07-09 11:29:22

Got it.

By: Tilghman Lesher (tilghman) 2005-07-09 12:23:30

Ooops.  One more 2 character fix.
