[Solved] Fresh install: no C compiler?


I’d like to compile some ports. But the compiler isn’t installed by default.

I found out I need to install some “OS-” packages. I got some progress, but the compiler isn’t ready yet.

Which are the packages/components I need to install in order to be able to build some ports?

(In case you’re wondering, I’m trying to build seamonkey and openjdk8…)

Just run “pkg search OS- | grep development” to see the whole list. There are something like 200(?) packages that fix that category


Amazing! Thank you very much.


FYI… I’m building now. I was missing just one required package: OS-runtime-development.


sudo pkg install OS-runtime-development
