    Are you saying you replaced the system compiler, or what is it that
    you've done? Also, detailed version information (of installed system,
    installed source, gcc, and so on) would be a good start.

    At first glance this looks like some funky mismatch in the makefiles.
    Altough that path looks a bit truncated also. Is this a stock system,
    and if not, what did you change?

    Thanks for reply, I dont thinik I physically changed anything, I think
    one of the installers I have tested like "portmaster or Portmanager"
    could have altered things
    I actually didnt get this error until after I installed GCC4.4.0.
    AnyWay here is my "uname -a"

    FreeBSD jasons-braain 6.3-RC2 FreeBSD 6.3-RC2 #30: Sun Jan 6 01:30:27
    UTC 2008
    root@tinderbox.3c-consulting.lokal:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC i386

    & My Make.Conf which seems simple & different to some others I
    have seen?

    # Disable VuXML checks, vulnerable ports are marked FORBIDDEN anyway
    # this prevents installing with non-vulnerable options (see

    # Compile with cups support

    # Makes cups shadow printing support in the base system

    # Use Firefox's gecko engine since it's preinstalled

    -This says I am using GCC version 3.4.6 but I have 2 others including
    GCC4.4.0 installed in the hope of installing the latest Nvidia because
    Nvidia wouldnt compile with earlier version of GCC.
