FreeBSD dependencies:
- compiler:
pkg install gcc5
- autotools + pkgconf (for builds from svn/git)
pkg install autotools pkgconf
- pkgconf might be needed to find libs in build from tarball too:
pkg install pkgconf
- building with cmake + ninja instead of autotools:
pkg install cmake ninja
- libev (cross-platform event loop library) if freebsd-kqueue from lighty isn't working
pkg install libev
- stack traces on asserts:
pkg install libunwind
- PCRE (mod_rewrite, mod_redirect, config conditionals, ...)
pkg install pcre
- TLS support (and mod_auth {SHA1} support)
pkg install libressl
or (mysql-connector-c still requires openssl)
pkg install openssl
- PHP for unit tests
pkg install php56
- MySQL for mod_mysql_vhost
pkg install mysql-connector-c
- File and directory monitoring
pkg install gamin
pkg install fam
- Lua 5.1 (mod_magnet and mod_cml; lighty upstream doesn't support 5.2 yet)
pkg install lua51
- (deprecated) memcache library (mod_cml and mod_trigger_b4_dl feature)
pkg install libmemcache
- gdbm (mod_trigger_b4_dl feature)
pkg install gdbm
- LDAP (mod_auth feature)
pkg install openldap-client
- SQLite3 (required for most mod_webdav features)
pkg install sqlite3
- XML (mod_webdav properties and locking)
pkg install libxml2
- UUID library (mod_webdav locking)
pkg install e2fsprogs-libuuid
To help autotools find libraries and headers:
CPPFLAGS=-I/usr/local/include LDFLAGS=-L/usr/local/lib ./configure ...
With ssl the compiler might warn about OPENSSL_NO_KRB5 redefinitions, just
configure "--with-kerberos5" for now.
