Do you have the curl source extracted to /usr/home/testdev/curl? Unreal won't do this for you, which is why it asks for the path to curl during ./Config

Please also attach the config.log file after an unsuccessful ./configure.

You should really install libcurl using ports or whatever FreeBSD's package manager is instead of installing it locally.

Well libcurl is installed

It's because -lidn is missing. I think the check is broken.

Please provide curl-config --cflags --libs output in a comment.

curl-config --cflags --libs -I/usr/local/include -L/usr/local/lib -lcurl -rpath=/usr/local/lib -L/usr/local/lib -lssl -lcrypto -lssl -lcrypto -lz

As nenolod says:

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lidn
configure:7069: $? = 1
configure: failed program was:
| /* confdefs.h */
| #define PACKAGE_NAME "unrealircd"
| #define PACKAGE_TARNAME "unrealircd"
etc.. curl..

I'm not sure where the -lidn is coming from.
Your curl-config paste suggest it's not coming from curl.

configure:7049: checking curl_easy_init() in -L/usr/home/zcuchat/curl/lib -lcurl -lcares -lidn -lssl -lcrypto -lssl -lcrypto -lz
This suggests that it's coming from c-ares ?

Or from openssl?

I mean it worked fine until this version.

yes, c-ares is pulling it in. i think he is using system c-ares, which is compiled against libidn, but ports didn't pull in libidn when he pkg_add'd it (which is not surprising because freebsd package management is kind of poorly engineered)

What can we do to get this to work? or what can i do change on my end to get tit to work


2012-06-11 07:36

reporter   ~0017023

you should be able to get it working by installing libidn since system c-ares depends on it. alternatively, you could try --without-system-curl configure option.

I've tested this with the nightly builds 9-19 and it worked fine with remote include but if I download 3.2.9 from the website it doesnt work.

Thanks for the update.

I'm considering this fixed then.

Also, it seemed more of a FreeBSD issue than Unreal, but I'm glad the nightly build resolves things for you :)
