problems with building packages under FBSD3.0

I get with most packages under fbsd30 errors when starting make.
The system always produces errors within the Makefile while not
finding the includes ".include <>" and
".include <>". Where are they? I installed a

Thanks in advance

1. problem building gtkmm (and other C++ packages) on freebsd 4.1.1

Hey guys,

I'm a somewhat seasoned FreeBSD user as I've been using it and developing
with it for over about 2 years (inlcuding porting sloppy C code that works
under glib to work under the much more unforgiving libc, lol :) a very
frustrating job). But I havent played around much w/ C++ under freebsd and
I've had trouble in the past w/ FreeBSD's standard C++ header files. In
the past I didn't have time to troubleshoot and walked away from the
problems, finding solutions coded in C. But finally I've decided to solve
this thing once and for all.

After a lil' search on google groups and goodle web I came up with people
on certain linux distro's even having the same problem, but I havent see
one clear cut solution yet. So anyway, the problem is that I get the
following error messages while building gtk-- 1.2.9 (latest stable) with
gmake on a pretty sane FreeBSD 4.1.1 box:

In file included from /usr/include/g++/iostream.h:31,
                 from /usr/include/g++/stl_alloc.h:45, from
                 from /usr/include/g++/std/bastring.h:39, from
                 from ../gdk--/types.h:29,
                 from ../gdk--/drawable.h:27,
                 from ../gdk--/bitmap.h:26,
/usr/include/g++/streambuf.h:403: invalid type `void *' for default

Anyways, errors in the standard header files? Whats up with that? Also,
I've received these errors in the past building other C++ libs/apps, but I
can't recall which ones at the moment. Anyone experience anything like
this in their experiences? any solutions?
