That was it! It now starts fine, and the plugin directory is
Is this mount requirement mentioned somewhere? The manual says
to refer to README.txt. there is a README in the bin directory but it
has no information on this.
Would it be possible for CinGG to detect this and give a proper error

After install pkgcfg that error was gone.

I still get build errors though. Are you using the blds/bsd.bld script
as it is in the git?

Thanks for the package list, you do have more installed than is on my
test VM.

Is audio working normally for you? According to the preferences, OSS is
used, and there is sound but it is very soft. I see no alsa/pulseaudio
on your list (you can get them by pkg install alsa-utils). But they are
disabled in blds/bds.bld .
