NOTE: Many packages are available from other URLs as well.
FreeBSD Ports exist for VTerrain and all of its dependencies. So binary packages may already be available. Check for them first: http://www.freebsd.org/ports/ Chances are you have many of them installed already. Grab the new ports from the main repository, or here: http://www.freebsd.org/~rhh/vterrain/FREEBSD-PORTS/ Unpackage them, and simple run "make install" as root. These ports were developed on FreeBSD 4.3.
It should not be difficult for someone familar with the Linux package managers (Redhat, Debian, etc.) to convert these ports to various Linux flavors so building and installing is simple there as well.
Your system probably already has some of the needed components installed, so check there first to save yourself trouble. If you have problems, come back to the dependency version list above.
Thus far I've compiled this VTerrain snapshot on FreeBSD 4.3, with the gcc 2.95.3 compiler. I ported a previous snapshot to IRIX 6.5 with both gcc and the IRIX compilers as well as Linux Mandrake with gcc, so compiling the latest on those platforms shouldn't be too hard.
See section II for URLs to various packages. Many dependencies will be available here as well for a time: http://www.freebsd.org/~rhh/vterrain/FREEBSD-PORTS/distfiles/ Some of the dependencies require patches to build on UNIX (or certain UNIX flavors), while some are very portable and probably will not. Refer to what the FreeBSD ports are doing for tips and patches: http://www.freebsd.org/~rhh/vterrain/FREEBSD-PORTS/ Also you may want to refer to: http://www.freebsd.org/~rhh/vterrain/FREEBSD-PORTS/pkg_info/ for information on where the various dependency files are being installed on FreeBSD.
The following is a suggested build order for dependencies. Skip those you already have:
configure --prefix=/usr/local \ --with-libz=internal \ --with-png=internal \ --with-libtiff=internal \ --with-libgeotiff=internal \ --with-libjpeg=internal \ --with-libgif=internal \ --with-python gmake gmake install
Now fetch the TerrainSDK package, and unzip (with the -a option) into this directory. cd into TerrainSDK.
Edit Make.defs and uncomment the section of make definitions for your platform. Note that you'll also want to tweak the list of _DIR, _INC, and _LIB defines at the bottom of Make.defs to point to where you've installed the includes and libraries for the various dependencies.
Ok, now "make" (use GNU make). With some luck, everything will build and you'll end up with these files:
Copy your Make.defs from TerrainApps (they're basically copies
of each other).
Now "make" (use GNU make). You should end up with a "TerrainApps/Enviro/wxEnviro" executable. Copy to your favorite installed binary directory.
NOTE: As of this time, the VTBuilder app hasn't been ported to UNIX. If you have the time, go for it!
