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

3 dots ??? I think you misunderstand the documents.

If you do not require any special arguments like --prefix  or --modules etc, just issue the command:

# CXXFLAGS=-I/usr/include/boost ./configure

(without the dots)...

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.
  Please let me know if you need help!
