Hello all,

The "./configure" tries to find specific files.

How can I force it to enable GeoIP support.

If you installed the package/port under freebsd, just make sure your CFLAGS and LDFLAGS variables have correct include and lib paths. For example with bash..

export CFLAGS=-I/usr/local/include
export LDFLAGS=-L/usr/local/lib

I'll add it to the wiki now too.


Is geoip installed? (net/geoip in ports.)

Hi all,

Thanks for quick reply, I have GeoIP installed via FreeBSD port, now trying the solution mentioned.

Cheers :wink:


If i export the variables, I have problem with FileAnalyzer, just to let you know that I don’t have problem compiling without GeoIP at all.

This is the same problem I had when installing with the clamAV libs on
Ubuntu 7.04. The solution was to remove the libclamav development libraries.
