First of all, did you install the comp43.tgz set, that includes the system binutils/gcc/headers/libraries etc.

Again, It's like walking into a large multicultural restaurant and asking *everybody* what you should order...

Good point.. ( I do get vague sometimes.. )

I should have specified the "C" environment..
I was basing my question off of my experience with Solaris 10.

My standard install for compiling is:
-- coreutils-6.4
-- gcc-3.4.6
-- libtool-1.5.24
-- libiconv-1.11
-- make-3.81
-- zlib-1.2.3
granted there are other dependencies depending on the package..

I just got in my new drives and am in the process of replacing my Linux
email serve with OpenBSD and it looks like the Webmail package I want /need isn't available as a port or package..

I honestly had a good reason for asking this but .. oh crap.. getting old..
will remember later..
