The SFU/Interix package is a BSD-style pkg_add package (see below). After downloading the package to the target machine, follow these instructions to install the software.

  1. If necessary rename the downloaded file (see warning.)
  2. The SFU/Interix package is distributed as a BSD-style pkg_add package. For more information on the SFU/Interix platform see Support for Windows.
  3. The package must be installed by the Administrator or an account in the Administrators group. Run the following command and answer the prompts. The package will be installed in /opt/nmake.<release>, which will be referred to as <nmake_root>. Installation will consume a maximum of 12 MB.
    $ pkg_add nmake16-sfu.3.5-bin.tgz

      See /opt/nmake.16/README.nmake for information.
      For support, updates and documentation: 
  4. Copy or move your license file to file: <nmake_root>/lib/license/make
  5. Make sure cc is in your $PATH, or the variable CC is defined in your Makefiles or shell environment to a valid C or C++ compiler. If you are not using a C/C++ compiler then you can set CC= in the Makefiles to clear the default compiler setting.
  6. Add the nmake bin directory to $PATH. (Note, executing nmake using the path to the executable while a different nmake executable exists in the $PATH may cause errors):
        export PATH=<nmake_root>/bin:$PATH
  7. If you would like to access the man pages then add the nmake man directory to $MANPATH.
        export MANPATH=$MANPATH:<nmake_root>/man
  8. Some SFU platforms require the nmake bin directory in the PATH prior to the system ksh to pick up the included ksh88i. SFU installs pdksh, which is not compatible, at /bin/ksh and/or /usr/bin/ksh. Also see the probe FAQ for the probe shell requirements.
  9. If you are upgrading nmake please send us a note to indicating the nmake version and host line from the license file (<nmake_root>/lib/license/make installed above). This helps us know what versions are being used since the license covers all recent releases. Thanks!
