[Gluster-devel] building/installing on FreeBSD

I've been trying to build/install 3.7.6 from the source tarball onto
FreeBSD and have had some luck.

I basically needed to apply this little patch:

to avoid an undefined reference for xdr_auth_glusterfs_parms_v2.
(I also found that building without libxml2 doesn't work, because fields
 #if HAVE_LIB_XML are used in the code. Maybe it would be nicer if configure
 failed when libxml2 isn't installed, like it does for Bison, etc.)

Now, I can build/install it, but it isn't building any shared *.so files.
As such, the binaries basically fail.

I have zero experience with libtool. So, does someone happen to know what
it takes to get it to build the shared libraries?
I didn't do autogen.sh. I just used configure. Do I need to run autogen.sh?

Thanks in advance for any help, rick
