Thanks for the help here is where I am at. I had the file untarred in
/tmp already so I just went from there.

Slacker# cd usr.sbin/smapi
Slacker# ee Makefile
I added BINDIR=/usr/sbin tot he Makefile here.
Slacker# make all install

Oaky my question is this do I do this:
mknod smapi c 0 0 <-- a wild guess
or go for another step like
Add 'smapi_load="YES"' to /boot/loader.conf ?


Sincerely,
Brendhan
