Configuration of TWiki on FreeBSD 6.1 release leaves one warning:

Warning: 'patch' program was found on the PATH but is not GNU patch - this may cause problems. Patch version 2.1 

However, FreeBSD's patch is based on GNU patch. It's sources live in /usr/src/gnu/usr.bin/patch.

The problem is caused by _checkGnuProgram in $TWiki_sth/bin/configure. patch --version on FreeBSD will show

jahns@eagle bin > patch --version
Patch version 2.1

The regexp in _checkGnuProgram will fail as a result.

Well, it does say it may cause problems, not that it will. wink

I am reluctant to make that RE any more complex. I am regrading this to Low as it is a nicety, I think. Also setting to Actioning, as the analysis is clear.
