Hi Grass Users,

I'm trying to install Grass7 on FreeBSD 9.0 with the latest SVN snapshot.

The problem comes with " ./configure " command.

The error is : " ***Unknown platform: i386-unknown-freebsd9.0*** ".

Maybe one of us can help FreeBSD users.

Here is the outcome of " ./configure " command :
