I just read the above on arch-dev-public.

A while ago, someone came on IRC while no one was around to report the
status of getting pacman running on freebsd :

"got pacman to compile on libfetch and libdownload that are in FreeBSD 6.2
1. cut out with that damn bashism and linux non-posix crap
2. check the makefiles, they're full of bugs
but all this du -cb and cp -a crap...
and then the "source" syntax instead of "."
and there's also chown root.root, which should be root:root, or even better 0:0"

I just noted it because I thought it could be interesting, but I don't know
anything about this stuff. And I thought no one else cared.
But if Dan is interested in doing this, I just thought he should know about
the last 3 lines of this report.
If that doesn't help at all, sorry, just ignore this mail :)
