SWFoTE 2.1.5 FreeBSD

So I was reminiscing today and decided to try and install swfote.

I changed the compiler in the makefile to 'cc' and commented out:

#Uncomment the line below if you are getting undefined references to dlsym, dlopen, and dlclose.
#Comment it out if you get errors about ldl not being found.
#NEED_DL = -ldl

As I'm told this library does not exist and is not necessary in FreeBSD.

Compile seemed to go OK- only one error (using gmake):

/usr/bin/ld: warning: cannot find entry symbol xport-dynamic; defaulting to 00000000004023f0

Done compiling mud.

However, upon launching the MUD no commands (except socials?!?) work. In the log file I find:

Wed Dec 30 03:50:05 2015 :: Initializing libdl support...
Wed Dec 30 03:50:05 2015 :: Loading commands
Wed Dec 30 03:50:05 2015 :: [*****] BUG: Error locating do_say in symbol table. Undefined symbol "do_say"
Wed Dec 30 03:50:05 2015 :: [*****] BUG: Fread_command: Function do_say not found for '

For basically every command.

I've searched these forums ad nauseum but can't seem to find any reference to this problem.

If anyone has any ideas, please let me know!

This certainly sounds familiar. The command execution was changed a while back to use dynamic entry points. I wasn't involved much, but finding no commands for execution does sound like something you could search for.
