Third Party Software Distributed with NetBSD

This page contains a list of the software that has been integrated into NetBSD where we are not the primary maintainer.

When you make changes to this software, be sure to discuss it with the maintainer and contribute your patches. Divergence from the official sources is not desirable, and should be avoided as much as possible.

When importing, please deal with the RCS IDs in this way:

  1. Preserve the RCS IDs in the files by removing the $ signs from the IDs before you do the import.
  2. After the import, add NetBSD RCS IDs to all of the files.

Others like getaddrinfo.c could be merged with isc, but it seems
that ours is from a more recent version of KAME?
Todo[3]: net/base64.c is imported from bind but should be moved from net
to isc/base64.c.

gcc:

Current Version: 4.8.3
Maintainer(external): FSF
Responsible(NetBSD): thorpej, mrg
Mailing List: gcc-bugs@gnu.org
Archive Site: ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gcc/
Notes: As of April 2014, there are three versions of gcc in the NetBSD tree.
In the long term, we expect that there will often be two versions,
in the "gcc" and "gcc.old" directories. Having two versions allows
migration from one version of gcc to another to happen for one port
at a time, instead of for all ports simultaneously.
When importing a new version of external/gpl3/gcc.old:
- copy the current version of external/gpl3/gcc
- import it to a "NETBSD" vendor branch in externalgpl3/gcc.old
Before importing a new version of external/gpl3/gcc:
- delete all .cvsignore and .gitignore files
- delete java ada fortran their libraries and testsuites
- delete libffi zlib boehm-gc
- update gcc/version.c for the NetBSD GCC date
- use core/c++/objc/testsuite tarballs
- you can use the gcc2netbsd script for the above (except version)

- Debugging of kernel cores ("target kvm") works correctly
- Support for our kernel's remote serial debugging protocol
("options KGDB") works correctly.

Version in tree: 0.14.4
Current Version: 0.18
Maintainer(external): FSF
Mailing List: bug-gnu-utils@gnu.org
Archive Site: ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gettext/
Notes: GNU gettext is used for userland tools like msgfmt(1) only. For libintl,
we use BSD-licensed implementation from Citrus project (see entry for

see also http://www.monkey.org/openbsd/archive/tech/0306/msg00129.html)

Responsible(NetBSD): manu, vanhu, mgrooms
Mailing List: ipsec-tools-devel@lists.sourceforge.net
Archive Site: http://ipsec-tools.sourceforge.net
Notes: ipsec-tools is maintained within NetBSD src tree in src/crypto/dist/ipsec-tools
We don't run ipsec-tools' configure as part of the NetBSD build. configure
generated files are available in the NetBSD source tree at:
src/lib/libipsec/config.h
src/lib/libipsec/package_version.h
When configure.ac is updated, run the following:
cd src/crypto/dist/ipsec-tools
./bootstrap
./configure --enable-adminport --enable-hybrid --enable-frag \
--enable-natt --enable-dpd
Then copy package_version.h to src/lib/libipsec and merge config.h with
src/lib/libipsec/config.h (it needs some manual tweaking)
 
KAME IPv6:
Version in tree: KAME/NetBSD SNAP kit
Current Version: KAME/NetBSD SNAP kit (shipped every week)
Maintainer(external): KAME Project <kame@kame.net>
Mailing List: snap-users@kame.net
Archive Site: http://www.kame.net/
Notes: IPv6 part is based on KAME/NetBSD142 SNAP as of early June 2000, with
more conservative implementation policy.
IPsec part is based on KAME/NetBSD14 SNAP as of 12 June 2000.
Please do not make too many diff-unfriendly changes (like indentation change,
KNF police). We need to take diffs across KAME snapshots on upgrades.
To identify kernel version, check net.inet6.ip6.kame_version, or KAME_VERSION
in sys/netinet6/in6.h. No script is available for upgrades.
"KAME" branch is used for kernel merge work purposes.
http://www.kame.net/dev/cvsweb.cgi/kame/COVERAGE has functionality comparison
among KAME/*BSD, *BSD-current and recent *BSD releases.

local changes (should always try to bring them back to master openssh tree,
markus is very cooperative about it):
- default for PermitRootLogin is set to "no"
- IgnoreRootRhosts added
- look at login.conf to check valid user/access list
- krb5 support re-added
- hack in cipher.c #ifdef ACCS because we are missing EVP_acss
when someone imports openssl, we can remove this.
- added moduli from portable openssh
- added USE_PAM patches and auth_pam.[ch] from portable openssh
(see if there is any difference between the current version of opensshX.Yp1
and the new opensshZ.Wp1) and apply them.
- conditionalize login_cap
- conditionalize bsd_auth
- restore krb5, krb4, afs, skey
- bring in hpn patches, disable mt aes cipher, keep speedups and cipher none
- fix ctype macro arguments
- umac is broken, disable it
- better ~homedir handling
- netbsd style tunnels
- urandom, xhome, chrootdir, rescuedir NetBSD handling
- utmp/utmpx handling
- handle tty posix_vdisable properly
- handle setuid and unsetuid the posix way instead of setresuid()
- add all missing functions
- always bump major when importing to avoid api problems.
- make compile with gcc-4.5; const fixes, fileno() checks, shadow fixes.

Responsible(NetBSD): christos, cube
Archive Site: ftp://ftp.samba.org/pub/ppp/
Notes: BSD support was removed from 2.4.0; I added it back and removed
some GPL pieces. Multilink support is missing. Repeated pings to
Paulus have not yielded results. I've retrofitted pppdump to use
net/zlib, and <net/ppp-comp.h> and I now maintain sys-bsd.c. This
is clearly a pain. I have not tested the modules code, neither our
makefiles make it easy to construct a module, but I left one there
as an example.
TDB code as found in 2.4.x, x>1 is under the GPL. Therefore, we're
using the version found in 2.4.1.

Notes: Don't use src/lib/libc/time/tzcode2netbsd to prepare the source tree for import.
Diffs are now applied by hand, since we have too many diffs (re-entrant tzcode,
register removal) to apply. The diffs have been submitted upstream but there
is too much inertia to apply them. Check for .gitignore files.
For the data files, do use external/public-domain/tz/tzdata2netbsd. You might
need to download the NEWS file separately if it's missing.

Notes: 1. Build package net/iana-etc
2. Add NetBSD rcsid to the generated protocols and services in the package
work area.
3. Append the local services from the current services file.
4. Run:
services_mkdb -u services > /usr/src/etc/services
cp protocols /usr/src/etc/protocols
5. Fix protocols
- fix manet alias to MANET; giving an alias with the same name is a no/op
- protocol 84 is defined for as ttp and iptm, merge the two entries since
libc getprotoent() does not read the whole file and merge in the "files"
implementation.
