[gst-devel] Building gstreamer on FreeBSD - Problems Compiling

Hi everyone. I'm trying to build gstreamer (0.9.1 or 0.8.10) on FreeBSD 
for use with a radio automation program called Livesupport.

I tried a week or two ago building it on a FreeBSD 5.3 box here, and it 
kept saying popt not installed. So I went in to the IRC channel on 
FreeNode, and they said to try ./configure with this:

CFLAGS=-I/usr/local/include LDFLAGS=-L/usr/local/lib ./configure

That got rid of the popt error. However, when trying to compile, it 
would always start out like this, and hang at the bottom line indefinitely:

-bash-2.05b$ make
make  all-recursive
Making all in include
Making all in gst
glib-mkenums  --fhead "#ifndef __GST_ENUM_TYPES_H__\n#define 
__GST_ENUM_TYPES_H__\n\n#include <glib-object.h>\n\nG_BEGIN_DECLS\n" 
--fprod "/* enumerations from \"@filename@\" */\n"  --vhead "GType 
@enum_name at _get_type (void);\n#define GST_TYPE_ at ENUMSHORT@ 
(@enum_name at _get_type())\n"          --ftail "G_END_DECLS\n\n#endif /* 
__GST_ENUM_TYPES_H__ */"   > gstenumtypes.h
Use of uninitialized value at /usr/local/bin/glib-mkenums line 213.
^C*** gstenumtypes.h removed


The IRC channel didn't have any ideas towards that, and I got busy, so I 
had to leave it for a while. Now, I have some time again, and am trying 
on a completely different box, a FreeBSD 4.11 machine.

I got the same error about popt, even though popt 1.7 was installed via 
ports. I tried the same configure command as above, and that once again 
got rid of the popt error. Unfortunately the same `make` problem is there.

I've also tried `gmake`, but that produces the same result.

config.log is attached.

Thanks in advance for any help.
