Does it work if you simply don't try to build PseudoTTYPlugin?
A quick scan on the Yahoo archive (which by the way claims to be 'full'
and in need of cleaning out somehow) for freebsd related messages leads
me to believe that noone has mentioned this simplistic 'solution'. Which
means I'm either brilliant or stupid.
Last time I understood the unix configure/makefile system it would not
try to build a plugin if the code was not there and so you might well
find all works if you simply remove the PseudoTTYPlugin from the VMMaker
external (or indeed internal) list.
If you feel the need to build from the pre-assembled filetree from Ian's
site, try simply removing the PseudoTTYPlugin mention from the
src/plugins.ext file. Who knows, maybe it will work for you.
