Please find the FreeBSD Getting Started Guide link http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/intelligent-systems/intel-technology/intel-dpdk-freebsd-getting-started-guide.html
The document refers to gcc version 4.8

Subject: [dpdk-dev] Building on FreeBSD


I see in both the announcements and release notes support for building and running on FreeBSD.  However, there are no instructions, nor does the "Intel DPDK for FreeBSD* Getting Started Guide" exist.

Is this forthcoming?

I've at least figured out to use 'gmake' instead of make.  But is there a particular gcc version to use?  Note that for FreeBSD, they are making a concerted effort to move away from gcc though it is provided as part of the ports tree.
