Solved OpenVPN-2.5.7 configure: error: lzo enabled but missing

Hi i am trying to upgrade my OpenVPN 2.5.3 to 2.5.7 version.


I followed below the instructions:

Code:
To Build and Install,

    tar -zxf openvpn-<version>.tar.gz
    cd openvpn-<version>
    ./configure
    make
    make install

But at the ./configure section i got

Code:
configure: error: lzo enabled but missing

I have installed below packages but no luck.
Any help would be appreciated at this point.

Code:
root@alfa:~/openvpn-2.5.7 # pkg search lzo
lzo2-2.10_1                    Portable speedy, lossless data compression library
lzop-1.04                      Fast file compressor similar to gzip, using the LZO library
p5-Compress-LZO-1.09           Interface to the LZO compression library
p5-IO-Compress-Lzop-2.101      Write lzop files / buffers

A jump in the dark.
Code:
pkg install lzo2
i already installed lzo2
mentioned above

~/openvpn-2.5.7 # pkg install lzo2

Version : 2.10_1
 
To be honest I think that just butchers the FreeBSD installation and puts unnecessary symlinks across the FS. With that configure script you can tell it where the libs are, it will use is that way. You are also risking an issue if somebody/something removes those symlinks.

As a side note you can use ports to build it too as it was mentioned above. If you for some reason prefer different version than what is offered by ports you can use ports-mgmt/portdowngrade to select previous versions.
 
Hi i am trying to upgrade my OpenVPN 2.5.3 to 2.5.7 version.
The 2.5.7 version is outdated. In ports the current (and latest upstream) version is 2.5.8, updated on 28 Oct 2022.

Also, no need to build from source, a 2.5.7 package is available in the "quarterly" branch for supported Tier 1 platforms.

Packages latest and quarterly:
FreeBSD:13:amd64 | 2.5.8 | 2.5.7_1
