Hi all,

I realize it has been a while since I've posted any progress of my RPM5 install on FreeBSD, but I did want to provide an update.  I was able to install RPM5 with relative ease from FreeBSD ports.  The only real challenge was that libSM failed to compile when it attempted to include /usr/local/include/uuid.h vs. /usr/include/uuid.h.  To work around this, I opted to move the former to a new name and re-run 'make install' and reversed the change later.

The simple tests I have done thus far have run and completed successfully.  I see that the only real tedious part will be making sure that the Provides are all in place and I imagine it will be an ongoing task that gradually decreases over time.

Thanks to Jeff and Anders for helping me get it up and running!
