BeOS is largely Unix/GNU compatible so for installing you should read the
instructions in INSTALL.unx. But there are a few issues:
- If you get the message 'error: cannot guess host type; you must specifiy
one' you need a autoconf/config.guess and autoconf/config.sub. Those from
- BeOS neither needs nor supports -lm. You should remove them (after
configure) from the Makefile manually.
- BeOS uses a blinking white-on-black cursor. This is largely unreadable in
the default Jed 0.99 color-scheme.
