I want to run Google Earth. Old forum posts say that I can just install the package; there is no package. There may be a Linux version of Google Earth that may be compatible with FreeBSD, but I can't find a way to download it.

BSD developer nox has a Google Earth shar archive inside a tmp directory, but it doesn't work.

make fails with:

make: "/usr/share/mk/bsd.port.mk" line 16: Cannot open /usr/ports/Mk/bsd.port.mk

Inside /usr/share/mk/bsd.port.mk we find this:

BSDPORTMK?=     ${PORTSDIR}/Mk/bsd.port.mk

Improper capitalization inside the configuration file in the default PC-BSD distro.

Fixing that leads to another error:

make: line 47: Malformed conditional (${OSVERSION}<700055)

Maybe it requires gmake? pkg install gmake and continue.

Makefile:39: *** missing separator. Stop.

There is an alternative called Marble. Attempting to open it causes KWallet to open instead. Closing KWallet causes Marble to complain that some password for some account will be sent in the clear. I should not need to log into any account to use a Google Earth type of program for which my identity is irrelevant, so I get stuck in an infinite loop of closing programs until I kill marble from the command line.
