[Pdns-users] Tools to analyse DNS traffic + problems compiling pdns

There's more to follow to my previous email.
We are supposed to put three dots after ./configure script to make it work
for boost headers. It doesn't work for me too.
The configure script says:

[root at localhost pdns-2.9.21]# CXXFLAGS=-I/usr/include/boost ./configure ...
configure: WARNING: you should use --build, --host, --target
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for gawk... gawk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking build system type... Invalid configuration `...': machine `...' not
configure: error: /bin/sh ./config.sub ... failed

What the hell does it mean?
Should I use it with the mentioned options? --build, --host and --target?

Hey Bert, 

Thanks a lot for coming back. Listen, every time I run configure script I
end up with the message saying that I miss Boost packages no matter where I
run the script (I am testing it on Linux CentOS4.5 and FreeBSD 6.2). I have
boost package installed on both machines. And I even copied boost folder
from /usr/include to pdns current directory and tried to tell configure
script where the boost folder assigning CXXFLAGS to $

Where am I wrong?

Extract the pdns-2.9.21.tar file, do configure, cd pdns, and then run 'make
dnsreplay dnswasher dnsscope'.

Better versions are part of the 'subversion' repository, which is explained
on http://wiki.powerdns.com - it might become easier over time.
