Re: apt

I had to do the patch to environment.mak also. I believe I used Wartan's patch
that was on the list a few months ago.

I had problems with ftp-archive also. At different points, with different
versions, and different versions of g++, it has segfaulted, failed to compile,
and just plain won't work. I disabled it in the Makefile. I haven't tried real
hard to fix it, because I felt there were other things that were more urgent.
If you figure out what's wrong with it, I'd be quite interested...

FWIW, I do have apt basically working on FreeBSD. It segfaulted quite a bit at
first, but seems to be working better, now that I recompiled it with gcc 3.0.
It might just be that the libstdc++ with 3.0 is better. I don't really know,
but it helped a lot.
