First, I hope this is an appropriate place for these questions.

I haven't seen much discussion or recent documentation on building seti@home, so I thought I'd post my trials and tribulations here.. they may help someone.

I'm trying to build with NetBSD's pkgsrc system. The effect of this is that boinc and s@h are building out of the following places:


I know that for building it is recommended to have BOINC and seti built under the same directory.. hard to do with the package system.

First I built BOINC (7.14.2 ). Attempting the seti@home build (SVN 3997), I get through configuration and the first problem is here:

In file included from main.cpp:40:0:
../sah_config.h:784:23: fatal error: std_fixes.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.

From earlier posts, I see that std_fixes.h is a BOINC file, and often this problem is that the seti@home autoconfig didn't find BOINC. But looking at the command line we have: "-I/usr/pkgsrc/wip/boinc-git/work/boinc/lib" as well as several other directories in boinc-git, so I think seti@home found my BOINC.

poweredge# ls -la /usr/pkgsrc/wip/boinc-git/work/boinc/lib/std_fixes.h
-rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 3105 Dec 8 11:30 /usr/pkgsrc/wip/boinc-git/work/boinc/lib/std_fixes.h

So, c++ (5.5.0) is being pointed at the directory with std_fixes.h but not finding it. Any ideas?
