MPS issue job003473

TitleMPS doesn't build on FreeBSD 9.1
Assigned userGareth Rees
DescriptionBruce Mitchener [1]:

Ahh, the reason for the missing x86_64 build for FreeBSD is that it doesn't work on FreeBSD 9.1 :) They've apparently changed their target triple:

    checking build system type... x86_64-unknown-freebsd9.1
    checking host system type... x86_64-unknown-freebsd9.1
    checking target platform... configure: error: MPS does not support this platform out of the box. See manual/build.txt
    Build step 'Execute shell' marked build as failure
AnalysisFreeBSD 9.1 has changed the output of uname -p on 64-bit systems: instead of "amd64", it outputs "x86_64". So none of the rules in match. Bruce supplied a patch [2].
