Description Domagoj Stolfa 2017-09-06 16:18:41 UTC
In FreeBSD, there are a number of CTF tools being shipped that utilise the CTF headers in the base system. These headers, however, are not installed on the system and therefore require the FreeBSD source in order to be used.

The CTF headers should be installed on the system in order to allow various developers to develop new CTF tools more easily that are not a part of the base system, much like ctfdump is developed in the base system (but can be compiled without it given the appropriate headers).
