FreeBSD port

The polipo software compiles on FreeBSD (6.x, 7.x, 8.x, 9.x, 10.x, CURRENT) without problems. Only installation requires some BSD specific steps. To simplify the installation further I created this BSD port for polipo. It has the following properties:


1. Using FreeBSD ports collection

  1. Update your ports collection (CVSup, CVS, CTM..)
  2. cd /usr/ports/www/polipo
  3. make && make install

2. Using port archive from this site

  1. Download polipo port archive
  2. Create work directory of your choice (e.g. mkdir polipo && cd polipo)
  3. Extract port archive (e.g. tar xvzf polipo-0.9.9-port.tar.gz)
  4. make && make install

3. Use a precompiled binary package

The FreeBSD distribution should contain the package. You can fetch and install the package with pkg_add -r polipo. Information about available versions for different FreeBSD architectures are present on The FreeBSD Ports Monitoring System.
