Hi Jürgen --

Looking at that document, it could use some updating. I'm the OpenBSD developer who helped Giuseppe create the port, and the one who committed the port itself, and now the one who took over maintaining the port.

First though, attached is a patch to fix the build on OpenBSD. With this patch, GNU APL will build on OpenBSD out-of-the-box. I assume NetBSD will have the same experience (though I cannot check).

I will send another diff for the README-6-porting file.

Hi Brian,

thank you for sharing this information. We already have a file
README-6-porting where we
collect information about how to compile GNU APL on operating systems
other than GNU/Linux.
There are already some sections for different BSD versions and if you or
Alexander have more
information available then I will be happy to include them in

Best Regards,

Hello --

GNU APL builds and runs just fine on OpenBSD/aarch64 -current. There
are some build fixes that I still need to upstream which you will
probably hit as well on NetBSD, but I have to imagine if it's doable
on OpenBSD it will be doable on NetBSD.

Dear List,

does anyone of you have experience with building GNU APL under
NetBSD-current / aarch64?

Many thanks in advance,

You have zero privacy anyway. Get over it.
