I am having trouble installing seti_boinc on freebsd. I installed MySQL-python-1.0.0, boinc and had to edit the seti_boinc Makefile to use /usr/local/bin/autoconf|autoheader > 254. .make fails with
updating cache config.cache
configure: creating ./config.status
config.status: creating Makefile
config.status: creating client/Makefile
config.status: creating db/Makefile
config.status: creating config.h
(cd client; make all)
"Makefile", line 147: Could not find dependencies
make: fatal errors encountered -- cannot continue
*** Error code 1
I am using freebsd current (build 16 june 04) on i386 (amd 2600) and seti_boinc-2.06. boinc itself installs fine.

You've got to use gmake instead of the freebsd make... :-)
In general, you'll have to use the GNU versions of things where possible when dealing with boinc....

I know someone who runs freebsd and he seems to have had succeeded doing a build following the instructions at

I'm that someone. It looks as though you (shaun) are trying to build v2.06. That's really old. Grab the nightly source code from June 24th for both seti_boinc and boinc. I tried the 25th, but the boinc source from that date wouldn't build. ./configure && gmake in the boinc directory. This should complete without any problems. Then cd into the seti_boinc directory. ./configure here should complete just fine. I then had to add the 2 includes mentioned in that thread (stdlib.h and assert.h) to two files: analyzeReport.cpp and lcgamm.cpp. After that, gmake completed successfully. I was then able to follow the directions listed at: http://boinc.berkeley.edu/anonymous_platform.php. It has since downloaded some workunits and it working on one now.
