Building on FreeBSD
--------------------
(Updated as of FreeBSD 10.3)
Clang is installed by default as `cc` compiler, this makes it easier to get
started than on [OpenBSD](build-openbsd.md). Installing dependencies:
pkg install autoconf automake libtool pkgconf
pkg install boost-libs openssl libevent2
(`libressl` instead of `openssl` will also work)
For the wallet (optional):
pkg install db5
This will give a warning "configure: WARNING: Found Berkeley DB other
than 4.8; wallets opened by this build will not be portable!", but as FreeBSD never
had a binary release, this may not matter. If backwards compatibility
with 4.8-built Bitcoin Core is needed follow the steps under "Berkeley DB" above.
Then build using:
./autogen.sh
./configure --with-incompatible-bdb CPPFLAGS=-I/usr/local/include/db5 LDFLAGS=-L/usr/local/lib/db5
make
*Note on debugging*: The version of `gdb` installed by default is [ancient and considered harmful](https://wiki.freebsd.org/GdbRetirement).
It is not suitable for debugging a multi-threaded C++ program, not even for getting backtraces. Please install the package `gdb` and
use the versioned gdb command e.g. `gdb7111`.
