Hi there,
I tried to build binaries for FreeBSD 4.10 STABLE.

Unfortunately, configure failed.

Here is what I did (I'm not quite sure if the sequence of comands is

cd /data/TeXCol/depot
rsync --recursive --exclude=Images tug.org::tldevsrc

cd Build/source
# ln ... in order to point to a texmf source tree
ln -s /usr/TeXLive/texmf texmf/

sh Build

running /bin/sh ./configure  --prefix=/data/TeXCol/depot/Build/source
--datadir=/data/TeXCol/depot/Build/source --enable-multiplatform
: not found
./configure: 20: Syntax error: "elif" unexpected (expecting "then")
configure: error: ./configure failed for utils/lcdf-typetools
configure: error: ./configure failed for TeX

I also tried  from Build/source.developmen but it wasn't better.
