    ^^^^^^^^^^
    We're not talking about Linux here!
    FreeBSD is *not* some form of Linux distro.

    Why not use the port or package system instead? There are numerous
    dependencies required which the ports/package system can pull in
    automatically.

    The other main reason for using the ports can be noticed if you examine
    the "files" subdirectory located under whichever port you are attempting to
    build. Here are located patch files required to adjust a generic "build" to
    specifically operate on FreeBSD.

    If you do not wish to compile the software use the package (pkg_add) system.
    In either case you are going to need to have an updated ports tree, as the
    pkg_add relies on the ports tree as well.

    If you are unfamiliar with installing software on FreeBSD examine the
    Handbook in more detail. Everything you need to know is in there.

    If you are attempting to build in your home directory because you do not
    have admin rights to the box talk to your sysadmin and have him install
    Windowmaker for you.
