[Freeswitch-dev] BSD Maintainers needed...

I have used FreeSWITCH on NetBSD since 2008. I do not use many features and have not been keeping up 
to date with new versions. My last build was version 1.0.head in January 2011.

I offer my assistance. Time is a big constraint, but I am interested in continuing to use FreeSWITCH 
on NetBSD systems.

Your email prompted me to try a new build and succeeded in compiling git branch v1.2.stable

I was unable to compile the master branch due to a requirement of openssl >= 1.0.1e and NetBSD 6.1.2 
has only 1.0.1c, I did not try much other than going back to v1.2.stable

I disabled a few modules (mod_spandsp, mod_lua, mod_xml_cdr, mod_xml_rpc, mod_xml_scgi) because I 
did back in 2011.

A diff of the changes I needed to make are:

I was able to run freeswitch in console mode and it started cleanly but I have not tried connecting 
any phones or making any calls.

One of the biggest problems for NetBSD may be the time calibration. I had to build a NetBSD kernel 
HZ of 10,000 to get a reasonable calibration to happen.
