    Proftpd update

    while using the ./build proftpd command i get the following error, fresh build update , fresh files etc

    checking for argz_next... no
    checking for argz_stringify... no
    checking whether libtool supports -dlopen/-dlpreopen... yes
    checking for bindtextdomain in -lintl... no
    checking for bindtextdomain in -lc... no
    configure: error: libintl support, required for NLS, not present -- aborting

    the OS is Freebsd 7.3 , and the ports version installs fine.

    any suggestions

    libintl is part of devel/gettext port. Install that port and you should solve the problem.

    Sorry but i dont use FreeBSD from about 7 years so i dont remember the command line for install that.

    Should be like portmaster gettext

    did try that , failed also , had to deinstall gettext and proftpd

    then start the proftpd install which also picked the gettext dependancy , which then selected the NLS thing to yes in the conf .... ohhh the hassels

    as i said earlier though , ports functions and installs correctly , the custombuild version continues to fail at the same spot

    are you using 64bit os? had you check if in lib directory that lib is present?

    If you are using 64bit os had you try to make a symbolic link to the lib?

    Yes gettext is installed. I even tried updating the package to the latest version and still no change. ls/usr/local/lib lists files libintl.so libintl.a libint.so.8 libintl.la libintl.so.9 installed. On a side note, if I remove the native language support from the proftpd configure file it buildswint no errors.

    I read post #4..... Did you read my post #5? Yes I am running Freebsd amd64, 8.2, 64bit. No it is not listed under lib. So I need to do a ln -s to /usr/local/lib/libintl.so?

    sorry i didnt read that was 64 bit xD

    Ok, so try to check if libintl.so is present in /usr/local/lib64/ and, if not, do

    Code:
    ln -s /usr/local/lib/libintl.so /usr/local/lib64/libintl.so

    mmmh strange that there is no lib64 directory on a 64bit os...

    im not totally sure so about lib64 folder position cause is a freebsd system and i dont use that since 8 years...

    try:

    Code:
    find / -name lib64
    for found where this folder is stored and try to make a symlink into there.

    Find command returned no matches. I tried to link libintl.so in the /lib directory to the /usr/local/lib/ibintl.so, that did not work either.

    We experience the same problem. For some reason, the libintl from ports is detected, but not from custombuild...

    Only for ProFTPD 1.3.3d, the 1.3.3c compiles fine...
