Building IRONMAIDEN 8.0.3 on FreeBSD 9.1 amd64

building is not for everyone.

install FreeBSD-9_amd64 (any 9.x release should work). fetch sources via perforce. fetch the patch. apply the patch.

get build dependencies automagically or build yourself. i prefer the first one:

setenv PACKAGEROOT && \
  pkg_add -r zimbra-builddeps-8.0.3

zimbra-pkg-proxy transparently forwards requests to for missing packages. by default, only zimbra-*deps are present, all other packages are missing. which is kinda neat.

for non 9.1-RELEASE you may try to experiment with:

setenv PACKAGESITE && \
  pkg_add -r zimbra-builddeps-8.0.3

to make FreeBSD fetch 9.1 packages.

now go to your patched zimbra source and run the build process:

cd ZimbraBuild && \
  ./ -t

it should detect FreeBSD and automagically install all the required stuff (if you select 'yes' that is). because noone ever follows howto's, right?
