  • autoconf259
  • gnu-automake

  • Configure the source code to use
    for its path, since that is where FreeBSD likes to put gtk/gnome stuff:
$ cd gramps-3.2.6
$ export PATH=/usr/local/gnu-autotools/bin:$PATH
$ export ACLOCAL_FLAGS="-I /usr/local/gnu-autotools/share/aclocal
         -I. -I /usr/local/share/aclocal -I /usr/X11R6/share/aclocal"
