I'm currently working on a tripwire-231 port. It compiles and runs on
FreeBSD using native FreeBSD binaries. I'm about 30% complete on a
FreeBSD-specific policy file. The policy file shipped with the source
is RedHat-specific: Many binaries that exist on RedHat do not exist on
FreeBSD and vice versa. Also many binaries on RedHat that reside in
/bin, /sbin, and /lib reside in /usr/bin, /usr/sbin, and /usr/lib. I
must say that I'm discovering some of the esoteric bits and pieces of
both RedHat and FreeBSD in the translation process.
If people want, I could shortcut the whole process by creating a
generic policy file similar to the generic nature of the tripwire-131
policy file. This would give us a tripwire-231 port now and an updated
tripwire-231 port with a FreeBSD-specific policy file later when I've
completed building the FreeBSD policy file. If people see value in
this, I will do it.
