Compiling devkitPro on FreeBSD
Yes it’s possible to compile devkitPro/devkitARM on FreeBSD. It does require a bit of tweaking though. Below are some notes I took while compiling devkitARM release 42 and associated libraries on FreeBSD 10.0-STABLE. It’s a lot of quick hacks, but that worked out for having a fully working libga based environment.
* bash script does not work -> replace /bin/bash with more portable /usr/bin/env bash * GNU MP is needed -> portmaster math/gmp * gmp header files not found while GCC is compiled -> problem files need manual editing pointing to the full path of the header, for instance /usr/local/include/gmp.h * linker cannot find -lmpc at the end of stage 1 GCC build -> -I/usr/local/include -L/usr/local/lib needs to be added in .devkitARM/arm-none-eabi/gcc/gcc/Makefile * abort defined twice in a row in libsysbase abort.c -> I removed the duplicate lines * same with iosupport.c ? * same with close.c, environ.c, execve.c, etc OK something is definitively wrong with the distribution of this source, or one of the scripts. I ended up `for ... do`-ing a lot of mv commands. * libfreeimage missing for building grit-0.8.12 -> portmaster graphics/freeimage * grit configure cannot find libfreeimage -> configure/configure.ac modified to skip test and -I/usr/local/include -L/usr/local/lib * grit fails to compile because cannot find FreeImage.h -> relevant .h and .cpp files edited to include /usr/local/include/FreeImage.h * tar tap error with libnds, libmirko, and maybe another one -> add '-f -' to relevant Makefile: bzip2 -cd libnds-$(VERSION).tar.bz2 | \ tar -x -f - -C $(DEVKITPRO)/libnds * Maxmod fails to build ->replace @make with gmake in maxmod.mak * Examples installed manually * when compiling projects, clang is used, fails -> the Makefile needs editing to replace @make with gmake
It’s very rough, but should give enough hints.
There is a small thread on the DevkitPro/DevkitARM forum on the matter: http://devkitpro.org/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=3203
