snappy is a fast compressor/decompressor library from Google. The software is available under the new BSD license.
It can be build the following way with a simple script. The script expects to find a decompressed source code tar bundle with the name snappy-1.1.0.tar .
script header become super user and install gcc 4.5 become super user and install make unpack the download bundle for version 1.1.0 change directory to the snappy directory run the configure script. Installation in /usr/local/lib Build the product Become super user; install under /usr/local change directory back to the original directory create a tar ball of the installation with all libraries compress the tar ball with gzip
There are chances that the target system may not have been configured as a development and build system. The two packages (gcc-45, make) will ensure that the build environment will be available.
Both packages are not needed at the run time of snappy. They can be removed if needed with the two commands:
$ pkg uninstall gcc-45 $ pkg uninstall make
