I had a couple of problems when compiling services under FreeBSD, the first was when compiling, services uses LIBS = -ldl in Makefile.inc, when in fact it needs to be -Ldl (capitol L)

also, in make install, -d isnt a valid param when using /bin/cp (when copying  "data/helpfiles")

Here are the version numbers of my software:

> gmake -v
