Most likely you are referring to
http://www.openacs.org/forums/message-view?message_id=247648
where the relevant line is
/home/dcarter/tmp/aolserver-4.0.9/nsthread/pthread.c:70: multiple definition of `_init' which which have for some reason omitted.

The solution to this problem is to add "-nostartfiles" to the link command (for linking nsd). The quickest approach is to edit the Makefile.

Btw, it is not recommend to use Tcl 8.4.13 (use 8.4.19 instead).

Thank you, that allowed me to compile the code. It appears as 'make' is running that everything compiles okay. I don't see any errors.

Since I've told it to compile without startups, I don't seem to have the nsd command to start the server. Can you tell me how to start the server at this point.

read http://openacs.org/test-doc/aolserver4 . "nsd" is installed "make install" by step (3) on this page.

Testing aolserver is described in http://openacs.org/test-doc/aolserver#install-aolserver-permissions
