   10: #Software requirements
   11: 
   12: Before you can use pkgsrc, you need a few packages installed on your Linux system upfront.
   13: 
   14: * gcc (and libstdc++)
   15: * libncurses-devel
   16: * zlib and zlib-devel
   17: * openssl-devel (optional but required for some packages) 
   18: 
   19: 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.

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