Dear GAP Forum,
Jef Moskot reported compilation problems on FreeBSD. In a recent message not
sent to the forum, he said:

The description of bugfix 1 includes:
This fix corrects:
6) Compilation problems on FreeBSD.
So, hopefully, applying this bugfix before compiling will resolve Jef's
In general, we would recommend that anyone downloading GAP installs all
current bugfixes immediately, rather than trying to get the system working
without them first. In general bugfixes only fix bugs, they do not introduce
new features, so they should generally simplify things, not complicate them.
