   11: #Software requirements
   12: 
   13: Before you can use pkgsrc, you may need a few packages installed on your Linux system upfront.
   14: 
   15: * gcc (and libstdc++)
   16: * libncurses-devel
   17: * zlib and zlib-devel
   18: * openssl-devel (optional but required for some packages) 
   19: 
   20: The names may vary, depending on what Linux distribution you are using. Also be mindful of the platform you are using (eg. i686 vs. x86_64 - some have different pre-required packages). Also note that some very basic tools such as file, patch, sed, and others are required, as well.

   22: #Troubleshooting bootstrap
   23: ##Shell's echo command is not BSD-compatible
   24: 
   25: If you see this error
   26: 
   27:     ERROR: Your shell's echo command is not BSD-compatible.
   28: 
   29: This error is known to occur if /bin/sh is linked to /bin/dash (recent Ubuntu versions).
   30: 
   31: The fix is to issue the following before commencing bootstrap: export SH=/bin/bash
   32: ##ARG_MAX undeclared
   33: 
   34: If bootstrap stops at
   35: 
   36:     In file included from glob.c:12:                                                
   37:     __glob13.c: In function globextend:                                             
   38:     __glob13.c:836: error: ARG_MAX undeclared (first use in this function)
   39: 
   40: Then apply this patch [1](http://mail-index.netbsd.org/pkgsrc-bugs/2008/06/21/msg026977.html)
   41: ##FORTIFY_SOURCE
   42: 
   43: If bootstrap stops at
   44: 
   45:     /usr/pkgsrc/bootstrap/work/bmake/arch.c: In function 'Arch_Touch':
   46:     /usr/pkgsrc/bootstrap/work/bmake/arch.c:1038: warning: ignoring return
   47:     value of 'fwrite', declared with attribute warn_unused_result
   48:     *** Error code 1
   49: 
   50: This error occurs because Linux uses -DFORTIFY_SOURCES by default. Bootstrap can be achieved by:
   51: 
   52:     CFLAGS="-U_FORTIFY_SOURCE" ./bootstrap 
   53: 
   54: ##libncurses not installed
   55: 
   56: If bootstrap stops at
   57: 
   58:     ERROR: This package has set PKG_FAIL_REASON:
   59:     ERROR: No usable termcap library found on the system.
   60: 
   61: Then install the libncurses-dev package
   62: 
   63: On an RPM based system this might be via 'yum install ncurses-devel', and on a debia/ubuntu system 'apt-get install ncurses5-dev'
